Backpacking Fourth of July Lake, Mokelumne Wilderness

Backpacking Fourth of July Lake, Mokelumne Wilderness, June 2017

This winter was a Sierra snow year for the books. I’ve lived in California all my life but don’t remember a winter where it rained for three months straight. All the snow meant my Sierra objectives were looking a little bleak and buried. I brushed up on my map and compass skills with REI and hit the trail in Mokelumne Wilderness at the beginning of June. My destination was a place I’ve never been: Fourth of July Lake in the Carson Pass Management Area.

Backpacking Meiss Lake, Mokelumne Wilderness

Backpacking Meiss Lake, Mokelumne Wilderness Trip Report

My little brother just got back from a brief stint of backpacking through Europe. With his heart still full of adventure, he asked me to take him out somewhere, anywhere. He didn’t give me any criteria and said he was down for whatever, but the first time someone goes backpacking will obviously make or break their experience. After much hemming and hawing, Meiss Lake in Mokelumne Wilderness was my pick.

Glamping with Tentrr at Falling Waters Oasis

This post is sponsored by Tentrr. All opinions are my own.

Over the Fourth of July this year, I had the chance to stay at one of Tentrr’s Sierra Foothill locations. I picked the Falling Water Oasis due to its proximity to North Lake Tahoe. My plan was to use our Tentrr as basecamp to escape the madness of Fourth of July at the lake while we bouldered our little hearts out over the holiday.

Stay Charged with the Jackery Explorer 240

I’m the person who always manages to kill someone’s car battery, especially bouldering in Bishop in the winter. Now that I have my own car (Opal!), I’m trying to take extra good care of her. My day job as a software engineer allows me to be remote. More often than not, I am (trying to be) on the road. Toss in my side gig as a blogger and photographer, and I need to power my electronics at all times.

Jackery sent over the Explorer 240 for me to play with while on the road. Here’s how it fared.
