This past weekend, I finally got to get out into my beloved Sierra mountains. It's been sooo long since I've climbed an alpine route in the Sierras, and I was glowing all weekend in bliss. It was also my first time going ice climbing, when we climbed the N Coulie of North Peak. We were planning to continue on to the N. Ridge of Conness, but the snow, as well as the thunder & lightening... and the 3 hours of sleep... forced us into making the right decision... and we hiked back out to Saddlebag.

Wile E Willy has been neglected for a bit... and it's been HOT here. (We're talking 80s folks!) So I've been finding opportunities to take him out whenever I can. Tim, Laina, and I did the support strokes paddle last weekend put on by our neighbors who own California Canoe and Kayak. And this weekend, I decided to venture out a bit further to Treasure Island.
Here's the map of my route from Endomondo....
The waves got pretty big around mile 3 up until mile 5.
And here's a vid of my escapades.
