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

We thought it would only be a 10 mile hike to Taft Point, but a closed gate turned it to 15. Amazing place to stay overnight in the winter... empty and peaceful. 🙂 The sunset was beautiful too. Although, it was quite sad to see the lack of snow again.

It's been a while since I've been up in the Sierra Nevada. Can't wait to go back this weekend.
Few months ago, I posted the uncropped version of this photo of Thousand Island Lake on Facebook, but I found that my dad had saved the photo onto his computer and cropped the top and bottom to make it more visually pleasing. It definitely looks better this way, but I certainly wish I knew about it sooner. Although my dad was not with me on the trip, this photo now always reminds of him. This is the only photo from any of my outdoor adventures that he has ever saved.

Felt good to #OptOutside this past weekend. My passion for climbing harder is coming back. On to the next chapter of my life whether or not I asked for it.

The afternoon storms sometimes come with a beautiful sunset. It certainly was at Lake Virginia. During the day.. we could see the storm clouds start rolling in from the distance before it started hailing on us. And as typical, the storm stopped for the sun to set. ☺️ #jmt #johnmuirtrail #backpacking #lakevirginia #mountainlife #bpmag #goatworthy #neverstopexploring #rei1440project #optoutside

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. 🏝️🗻 .
