Christmas in the Sierra...

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Christmas in the Sierra...

Postby SteveB » Wed Dec 21, 2005 12:08 am

OK, whether you "do" Christmas or not, what are you doing for Xmas?

Me, I'm planning to do a couple nights in the eastern Sierra area, somewhere between Bridgeport and Mammoth. Don't know where, don't have any fixed plans, and just plan to drive down the highway with a full cooler, warm clothes, and a couple loaded cameras! Maybe hit the lakes by Bridgeport, maybe pitch my tent at Convict Lake, dunno... :)

You?

Have fun in the snow - I'll be home for Christmas, but I'm heading to the desert for New Year's. It looks like Spirit Mountain near Henderson Nevada and Fountain/Edgar in Mojave are on the agenda for that weekend.

I am ging to visit my dad in Florida for Christmas, then I will spend a few days in the Sierra before the holiday week is over.

I won a gift certificate at Tahoe Daves Snowboard and Ski shop in Tahoe City so some of my Sierra days will be spent up there with one day working hard to find something to buy :) I hope to get a couple of days on the snow at Northstar or Sugar Bowl. Just maybe a day at Mammoth or June on the way back south.


Merry Christmas to everyone!!! Have a safe and fun holiday!

Staying home...getting harder to get around. :( With any luck, maybe a day trip to Yosemite on Monday.

Hey, my old stomping grounds! :p I lived in AG for years and years before moving here to Reno! Love the SLO area! If there was work there I might (MIGHT) move back!

I'll be at home, watching the snow melt off the east side of the Carson Range. No money.

Packing my gear for Winterfest over New Years, cut some wood to size for the stove at Winterfest, then back to Carson City to spend Christmas evening with my mom.

I was gonna try some dayhikes in the Bernardinos maybe, but I got a pretty gnarly thigh bruise playing basketball last Saturday and it is still quite uncomfortable going up the stairs. I think I might be stuck hanging out with the in-laws :\
Have fun everybody!!! :)

Mike, hows the lyme thing going? I got bit by a tick this past June on a trip in the Greenhorns and I freaked out! I thought of you! Fortunately I was able to get the bugger out cleanly, with no signs of the rash or anything like that after...but I sure was watching it like a hawk.
