Dennis Liew  Californian Climber & Hiker... ...inspired by the beauty of the natural world.

What an adventure!! We hiked the northern half of the JMT. This was my friend's (@nghiemb) first legit backpacking trip, and he did 120 miles in 7 days with me??? Incredible. He sure got the full Sierra experience.. high winds, hail/thunderstorms, off-trail route-finding, freezing nights, but not without the beautiful grand landscapes and sunsets. Ughh I want to do the full JMT now.

Garnet Lake. I thought it was beautiful. I was certainly baffled when the ranger at Mammoth Lakes told me that Garnet Lake is ugly, especially as a response to my question of where the optimal camping spots are. 🤷‍♂️ I'm not sure what his goal was, but the Sierra Nevada can never be ugly.

We were probably too casual in attempting this, but now I can improve on that. I also totally should not have traversed this section because it didn't help with getting to the ridge. 😀 "On" Saber Ridge (5.7).

Leaving Tamarack Lake after spending 3 nights there. We were attempting to climb Saber Ridge, but absolutely failed and had to bail off the mountain in the dark. It was a great learning experience anyway. I am thankful for the fair weather that lasted the entire trip. But... I'll never forget the cloud of mosquitoes.

This was the first time I sport climbed outside this year and I didn't expect myself to be trying anything too difficult. Here is my friend working on Unforgiven (5.11b) in Holcomb Valley. After seeing my friends on it, I decided I wanted to give it a try because my elbow didn't feel too bad. Got shut down, but I was glad to have attempted it. Time to improve my crimp strength!

My dream of doing JMT next month has been postponed. So sad. Unfortunately, my partner decided to drop out, but it is understandable; he wants to come back home to his children alive... And going in early July this year can be a little crazy with the water crossing. You may ask why not go alone?? I want to 😀 but I respect my fiancée's wish for me to at least have a partner on this endeavor. I will have to find an alternative to satiate my hunger.

Here's a picture of a colorful sunset on top Mauna Loa, Hawaii. A dream will remain a dream a little longer.

Heading up towards the pass to Royce Lakes. It was such a windy weekend but thankfully my tent stood strong. 😊 This was a good taste of what's​ coming in a few weeks, but I hope more will melt! I feel like I have no time to prepare without sacrificing some training or sleep.

Cabin on top of an active volcano at 13,250 ft. Mauna Loa is considered the largest volcano in the world by mass and volume. But because it is a shield volcano, it looks so flat and insignificant from afar. I find the landscape there to be quite other-worldly. There was only one other person with me the two nights I spent on this volcano. Quite amazing how no one else really hikes this, but I guess most people go to Hawaii for other reasons. 🏝️🗻 .

This is the first time in many years where I don't have a trip planned for this holiday weekend. Need to take advantage of the extra time off to get ready for my upcoming trips. Can't wait!

Last Friday, I finally got the opportunity to take the next step in life... On a beautifully secluded hike. Here I am strutting away from my former girlfriend. Because she is now my fiancée! 😊

This is the last photo taken right before I canceled my camera's interval timer. I think it captured the moment beautifully.
Another reason to love Utah now. ☺️ #proposal #cherrypeaktrail #utah

It was raining and then snowing most of the way up to Eagle Peak, but as the evening approached, the sky cleared up for a crisp sunset. 😂 Going out during an uncomfortable weather/season is a great way to experience the outdoors in solitude with your friends!
