Welcome to the Sierra Sojourner blog!

What's all this about?

We will be blogging about our adventures throughout the Sierra Nevada mountains as we explore this vast region via mountain biking, hiking, climbing, backpacking, kayaking, backcountry skiing, and whatever else we can think of!

We're motivated to spread our love of nature, photography, and outdoor sports as we sojourn in the Sierras.

Sierras: (n.) Some of the most amazing and rugged mountains in the world, ranging from Oregon to Mexico.

To Sojourn: (v.) To journey, abide, inhabit, travel, vacation, adventure.

  1. Hi!
    Your blog is awesome, and I just wanted to let you know what a welcome find it is, sitting here in my classroom in Las Vegas with 2weeks of school to go. :)
    We switch back and forth between trips to the Eastern Sierra and southern Utah, and actually have a lot more experience in Utah. If you get the chance, you'd probably really dig places like Boulder mountain or Escalante in Utah. Anyway, maybe you can tell me where you took the pic of the waterfall and your friends jumping in? I'd like to visit that particular spot! :)

  2. Hey thanks for the comments. Yes, utah is really cool - i plan to explore the escalante area a bit more.
    The swimming hole/waterfall is on bull run creek out of kernville. Have fun!

  3. Wow, thanks for all the great trip ideas! I have done a lot of backpacking, light mountaineering, and alpine skiing/snowboarding in the Sierras (south, east, and west) with a few lucky visits to Zion (backpacking and Canyoneering) and the Grand Canyon, and I am introducing a friend to backpacking this summer. Your Kern river area hikes helped me plan some routes for the n00bie! Thanks for sharing the backcountry stoke. Oh, and I second what Tyson says about Utah... you absolutely must try canyoneering in Zion NP. Here are some pics my friend took during out last visit:
