Trinity Alps – 2014

Over Memorial Day I took trip on my motorcycle up to the far reaches of Northern California to explore the Trinity Alps.

This is why you ride a motorcycle instead of driving a car.

This is Bigfoot country.  Never saw one, unfortunately!

Did two different backpacking trails.  First trip up to Sugar Pine Lake in the Trinity Alps.  Tough hike straight up.  The lake was worth it, though…

Here was my campsite close to the lake.

Also did an easy trip on the South Fork of the Trinity River.  Had to cross over the river to start.

Check out this rugged tree.  The barbed wire is going right through it.

Mosquitos don’t affect me!

Stopped in Danville, California on my way home to visit my college roommate and lifetime best bud Steve Hoffman.  He broke out some Pappy Van Winkle 20 yr old.  (Note: Anyone who pours me Pappy 20 can be my lifetime friend!).
