Today was the best Monday hike we have done so far with the Sierra Canyon Hiking Group. We parked on the Mount Rose Highway and hiked south on the Tahoe Rim Trail up Chickadee Ridge. It was a beautiful day but cold when we started out. There was quite a bit of ice on the trail. I loved it though. The scenery of the forest, mountains, and Lake Tahoe was stunning. The crisp mountain air made the day all the more glorious. We must have seen 20 different bicyclists on the trail but a only a couple of other hikers.
Here is the Flickr link to the pictures of the hike.
I had a nice email exchange a few days ago with Bob Coomber AKA 4WheelBob, the guy who recently climbed White Mountain and was the first person to do it in a wheel chair. I talked about him in my blog here and here.
There is a great YouTube video of his ascent of White Mountain posted by Rick at besthikes.com
In our email exchange I commented that one of the nice things about blogging is the people you ‘meet’ as a result. On of the things Bob said in his email to me is….
"I’m not a real publicity hound by nature, so my challenge the rest of the year is to assert myself to Corporate America, hoping some businesses find some PR value in sponsoring my planned Kilimanjaro summit next summer."
So if you know anyone who would like to sponsor him let him know.
