Weekly Pano: Conness & North Peak

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.

Kayaking around Treasure Island!

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.
