It is not alone the conspicuousness of this celestial vacancy, opening suddenly in the midst of one of the richest parts of the Galaxy, that has given it its fame, but quite as much the superstitious awe with which it was regarded by the early explorers of the South Seas.

Yankee Doodle Trail Ski Tour (Rendezvous Trails, WInter Park, Colorado)

Buy my new novel Take to the Unscathed Road now!Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
Lauren and I wanted to get a short tour in near Winter Park, and we had no interest in going into sketchy avalanche terrain. As a result, we found an easy set of trails in the Rendezvous development near downtown Winter Park.

The trail starts at an obvious parking lot and there are some wooden posts to indicate the start. We headed up the Yankee Doodle trail which is quite narrow and not conducive to skiing down, but it was a fine ascent trail.

There were some nice views of the resort on the way up the winding switchbacks.

We got up to the top of a wooded dome area which flattened out a bit and we met up with a much wider road which appears to be unnamed on the map.

We took this wider road up to Corona Pass, and there were a decent amount of ski tracks up to the pass. Instead of continuing along Yankee Doodle we headed up to the road and began our ski.

We took this wider road up to Corona Pass, and there were a decent amount of ski tracks up to the pass. Instead of continuing along Yankee Doodle we headed up to the road and began our ski.

The ski was quick and easy down, but we only got a few turns in. Instead of continuing down the Yankee Doodle Trail after the switchbacks, we took a sharp right onto a wider trail but we didn't get much speed until the last half mile or so down to the car. This is a fine easy ski tour but if you are expecting many turns you won't get them.

Total Time: ~1 hr 3Total Distance: ~3 milesTotal Elevation Gain: ~660 vertical gain

Get out. Do good.

Over a year ago I started revamping ONDA’s independent stewards program. Traditionally our independent stewards took a self-directed approach to monitoring eastern Oregon public lands, helping us and the Bureau of Land Management with Wilderness Study Area monitoring. I was looking to streamline it and make it more effective all across the board, but then COVID hit.

Traditionally ONDA engages hundreds of volunteers each year on a variety of group stewardship projects (I always led the trail work portions), but this group volunteer model was just not prudent during a pandemic, so we canceled most of our trips last year.

What do we do in 2021? When we started planning for this year we had no idea if the virus would still be here, still be impacting how we gather, still limiting our activities, still changing how we spend time outside. So, it seemed the independent stewards model could be the answer…could we mobilize hundreds of volunteers to do projects on their own out the in desert?..

So, it seemed the independent stewards model could be the answer…could we mobilize hundreds of volunteers to do projects on their own out the in desert? Well, we are going to find out.

We will need hundreds to do all the work we have lined out for the year, which includes stewarding almost 100 miles of trail along or near the Oregon Desert Trail…and much much more.

Please take a few minutes to learn more about our program, and sign up if you have any time to add some purpose to your next desert adventure.

jail break

I fidgeted, trying to write a visitor use management plan for a forest. It was sunny outside, and torture to be in! Lately I find that it is never enough. I had already been for a run, so why couldn't I just sit happily? Yet, I could not.
Finally I gave up and grabbed my snowshoes. Earlier I had run up the road to Kinney Lake, only to find it completely drifted in. A brave soul had tried to four wheel it up the big hill and had failed, having to back down. I wanted to get to the lake–it's one of my favorite spots. Tonight, I would get there.
I parked at the base of the hill and trudged up, running into some ice fishermen I knew on the way down. “We tried to beat a path,” they said, “but it drifted in.” My snowshoes crunched in the crusty snow, and I could spy a kite up ahead. It had to be my friend out kite skiing.
I arrived at the lake to discover him leaving, claiming it was too gusty. I had the lake to myself, and I walked out onto it. The view here never disappoints–I c..

I arrived at the lake to discover him leaving, claiming it was too gusty. I had the lake to myself, and I walked out onto it. The view here never disappoints–I could see the Seven Devils in the distance, and right above me, the Wallowas.

A few disconcerting slushy spots sent me on my way before too long, but not before a pink sunset ensued. I hadn't been all that motivated to drive out here, but it was worth it.

Later, my friend P and I got on a Zoom. We were both working from home, but he wore a tie while I had on a hoodie dress. We were over it, we agreed. We needed something to look forward to.

We decided it was time for a jail break. We pondered on October for a hiking trip. All around me friends are going to Hawaii, Mexico, Costa Rica. I'm not ready for such far-flung travel (who wants to skulk around Hawaii in a mask?) but closer destinations, we agreed, by then, should be okay. I am luckier than he is, living close to the wilderness. It has been a lifesaver in a year where nothing much has been great.

Sometimes I wake up feeling like every day is the same, work, try to fit exercise in, sleep, cram cram cram. "You have a hurry-up personality," a friend observes, and while I don't really like that about myself, I have to agree that it often feels like there just isn't enough time. Will that change once I no longer need to work? I don't know. All I know is that I am trying to squeeze out every second that I can.

Monarch Lake Loop Trail (Granby, Colorado) (Winter)

Buy my new novel Take to the Unscathed Road now! Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
Monarch Lake Loop is a classic Colorado gem in the summer. In the winter, it's a little trickier to access, but with some snowshoes and good tires, you can get there seamlessly.

Unfortunately for us (Emily, Justin, Brian, Lauren and myself), we had a cloudy day when we visited, so we didn't get to see many of the views. And of course, the lake was covered in snow. But it still made for an enjoyable loop.

We took the Arapaho Pass Trail, but we had to walk the road about .75 miles because it is gated off.

There were a few blowdowns, but the trail was mostly in good shape. We had to break a decent amount out until we caught up with some people who were barebooting and had wrecked the trail.

As we looped around, the treed in views became much more open, but there were only clouds to be seen.
