We are a couple of hikers based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. We backpack the Sierra Nevada region often and do practice hikes in the area. We are also avid photographers, so a lot of our hikes are driven by photography opportunities.

This publication is a collection of hikes we do throughout the year, liberally illustrated with photographs.

We are also passionate about gear - both photography and backpacking. There will be a liberal amount of gear post in this as well.

We decided to use the newsletter format since it is easy to write and easy to consume. Please subscribe to our feed if you are interested in photography, hiking or backpacking, particularly in Northern California.
