It's now been about 14 years since I first started this web site as a resource for Sierra Nevada mountain pictures. During this time, I've seen many much better sites with far superior images fill this need so, I've decided to take HSMI in a somewhat different direction...
In the upcoming months I hope to start using this site as a vehicle for my illustrated trip reports. These reports span some 40 years of hiking and climbing not only in the Sierra Nevada, but also in many other locations around the state. A lot of work, to be sure, but also a lot of fun.
Thanks for visiting and stay tuned :-)
