The bomber glacier hike has so much in store, read on to learn more!

Hiking Mexico’s Snow-Capped Volcano, Nevado de Toluca – 15er!

Nevado de Toluca
I’m lying in snow, 14,000 feet above sea level on a volcano known as Nevado de Toluca, when I feel warm breath against my hand. Exhale, groan, roll over. It’s a dog, come to investigate my motionless form. “Good dog,” I slur and raise a hand to pat her head. Her name is Maya, I think, and she’s been tagging along with our hiking group since this morning.

Why I Hike San Gorgonio in the Winter Months

San Gorgonio
I spend so many daylight hours of my winter months, no not chilling by the fireplace with a latte and a good book, but out on the snowy trails of the San Gorgonio Wilderness.
