Eastern Sierras – Alabama Hills & Bristlecone Pines

January 4, 2015 § Leave a comment

Now that my sister has gone off to Berkeley to set the curves in her math classes, my Dad has taken up outdoorsmanship full time… and IT. IS. AWESOME! Combine Asian thriftiness with the internet and a love for the outdoors and BOOM,  I arrived home to find technical rain jackets, soft shells, a 15 degree rated sleeping bad and a top notch Thermarest. There’s really no better way to celebrate the holidays than some -12 degree father-daughter camping.

Definitely Type II fun.

Bristlecone pines don’t biodegrade – the oldest logs are over 9,000 years old. Wicked awesome.

Right after this photo, my iPhone warned me that it was too damn hot and the phone was shutting off until it cooled down.
