Mount Givens is a peak in the John Muir Wilderness near Kaiser Pass. It is a moderate hike from the White Bark Vista point and provides excellent views of the central Sierra Nevada Mountains. I hiked this with Alexa and Heidi the dog on July 19th, 2020.
Lemosho is a route for climbing Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. The route has beautiful scenery and a high success rate. Alexa and I hiked this route over 8 days starting in January 2020.
The following list is all the gear that Alexa and I packed for climbing Kilimanjaro via the Lemosho Route. It should give you a good idea of what to pack but may include things you don’t need or may be missing things you want.
Goat Mountain is a non-technical peak in Kings Canyon National Park. The most common access is via the Copper Creek Trail. It can be done overnight or in a big day. I opted to hike it in a big and tiring day June 10th, 2020.
