Sierra Crossing — SF Chronicle 8 Part Series is Amazing

There is no permalink for this series, but I’m sure if you visit the Chronicle’s Outdoor homepage for the next few months, Tom Stienstra’s eight part series on a once-in-a-lifetime trek across the cradle of the Sierra will be there.

An avid backpacker myself who’s spent countless nights slogging over passes and sleeping on warm granite, Tom’s beautiful writing is just about as close as you can get to the deep Sierra without setting foot into the backcountry.

Other great sierra reads for the summer:

Nature Noir – Ranger Jordan Fisher Smith’s memoirs of patrolling the American River canyons.

The Last Season – Eric Blehms gut-wrenching narrative of a popular and successful park ranger who mysteriously went missing. (Think Into the Wild, but even more disturbing)
