Each year, our SAR team, San Diego Mountain Rescue, completes “Mountain Climb” trainings where we work on our teamwork and summer mountaineering skills. This year, a permit spot opened up on a trip for Middle Palisade (14,012′), one of California’s 14ers. Here’s the video trip report.
My pack for this trip was a 17L, 15 lb load – one of the lightest packs I’ve carried for a 2 night trip. Here’s the inventory.

I took a trip to Grand Teton NP in Wyoming. 14 hours away and spent 4 days and 3 nights out there. One of those days was in Yellowstone. Grand Teton NP and Jackson Hole Wyoming were among my Dads favorite places I when up there during Fathers Day week because this was the last place we traveled to before he passed away. Good memories. I wish I had seen a moose like we did 14 years ago.
My solid gear choices after hours and hours of careful research and returns.

The Garmin Mini is a champ
My ultralight hiking down jacket
My ultralight day pack
Garmin InReach Mini
My bivy choice
My cold weather sleeping bag
Sleeping air pad
My headlamp choice. Love this thing
