    This simple yet staggeringly divisive question has split adventurers into polarized camps for centuries (or so I imagine). Some groups swear by the burger, fries, and beer combo.

Rainier with tons (and tons) of elevation change.  Naturally, it wasn’t until about a week ago I started thinking, “huh... maybe I should start preparing for th...

    The Hike that Humbled Me

    I’ve done some big hikes. Mt. Whitney, Catalina, and Mauna Kea are the biggest ones I’ve written about here, and I’ve even done some big hikes that I haven’t written about (Sand Gorgonio, San Jacinto, and down-and-up the Grand Canyon).
