Nebo Scenic Loop info:



Delta, UT

Week of August 23

We walked into Delta in the middle of the night on August 26, after experiencing a windfall of hospitality as we drove by a free car wash put on by the local church. Hiking though Marjoram's Pass beat Death Canyon trail (our original plan), and we continue to be impressed and saddened by the magnificent sunsets brought on by the California fires. 


Lund, NV

Week of August 10, 17

Hyphenated by a wedding, we spent about two weeks in and around Lund, Nevada. It was entirely hospitable to us. We ended with a community barbecue on the lawn of one of our favorite Lundspeople, and hope to return again soon. Lund, you have our heart. 

Desert Road

Central Nevada

Week of August 3

This. Was. Hot. We had some new challenges travelling from Inyo on through Central Nevada. There are 200 mile stretches without food, gas or services. We had to up it to a new level of preparation as we crossed the desert, found water from highway patrol men, met angels and walked at 2am to avoid the heat. Also, we found our share of dry bones, biting ants, stray horses and interesting tales. 

Desert Reptile

Inyo Forrest, CA

Week of July 27

Leaving Yosemite for Inyo was a different type of beautiful. The wild mustangs, long stretches of desert, Mono Lake district, flying drones, and cities of Bishop and Mammoth were a breath of fresh air after so much wilderness backpacking. We have a few Secret File adventures available on the Pateron page, making this one of our most eventful stretches so far. 

Scenic Back Drop

Yosemite, CA

Week of July 13

We reached Yosemite a week later than expected, but with miracles in tow. Somehow, we were able to secure the right permits with a moment's notice, and had big help from a lot of friends, fans and park rangers. It was honestly one of the most raw, beautiful and brutal through hikes we've experienced, but worth every step.

Retro Portrait of San Francisco

Brentwood, CA

Week of June 29th

We walked through Brentwood, on to Tracy and across a host of other suburban towns on our way to Sonora. Check out our blog posts for the updates on this adventure.

San Francisco Skyline

Ocean Beach, San Francisco

June 24th

Jumping in the Pacific Ocean for a cold bath, then getting after it. Day 1 begins.
