Mt. Whitney in December 2015

Is it possible there will be no snow of concern on Mt. Whitney as late as December 7, 2015 ?
Will the drought continue long enough so that little snow falls ?
Will it, as predicted be a heavy snowfall winter, albeit late in coming?
Curious to anyone's observation.

Little Blue Peak, Cobb, Harbin and Boggs Mtn. after fires

Little Blue Peak/Ridge is the Ca. Yolo County high point. It is well known to be one of the most epic bushwhacks anywhere. Now with the Rocky Fire in summer 2015 I believe it has been burn out. I took photos from Grizzly Peak a few miles away and the top of Little Blue Ridge looks burnt out. Like Grizzly Peak it is well within the boundaries of the final map of the Rocky Fire ...

Middle Palisade October 17


I am planning to climb Middle Palisade this weekend. During my flight to San Francisco from New York I had great fortune in that the pilot flew over Mammoth Lakes and I could see a great deal of the Sierra Crest. I was surprised to see so much snow. Has anyone been up there lately? Is this just a dusting of snow that looks fiercer than it is, or is there really a lot ...

Overnight trip Sierra Nevada with a dog suggestion

Hey all, hoping someone might have some suggestions.
I'm looking for an overnight, or maybe 2 night trip somewhere on the west side that allows dogs.

I don't mind the distance or elevation gain, but would like to get up to some granite and a lake with limited crowds. I realize this is no small task - I'm willing to put some solid distance in to reach any destination. I understand this is all weather ...

camping regulations per jurisdiction?

Coming from Utah where you can pretty much camp anywhere, I still haven't figured out CA.

Can anyone provide clarity on which lands you can camp on and which you can't? (Talking about dispersed camping by yourself which is the best, not some crappy paid campground which is the absolute worst)

I am of the understanding that you can camp on National Forest / BLM Land other public lands except where there's some designated burn ...

Ritter, North face, class 3 or 4?

This site rates North Face of Mt. Ritter as class 3.

However, here is my video of ascending the route.

And here is Muir's description

At length, I found myself at the foot of a sheer drop in the bed of the avalanche channel, which seemed to bar all further progress. The tried dangers beneath seemed even greater than that of the cliff in front; therefore, after scanning its face again and again, I commenced ...

Fall Mystery Photos from 1936

This should be easy for someone in the know as it's so unusual. Again from Lewis Clark's photos of the 1936 High Trip. Looks more like Machu Pichu than a Sierra summit.
