Over The Hills And Far Away Run - October 8-10, 2021

After cancelling this run two years in a row, we’re back to try again!!


Your Hosts: 
Tina and Steve Sandke

Come join us for a weekend crossing the Sierra Nevada and back! The fall colors will hopefully be in full swing.

We’ll be doing a very informal run up to Murphys Friday afternoon, for those who can make it. See information below.

Saturday’s route takes us over Ebbets and Monitor passes and over to the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada. After lunch in the tiny town of Walker, we’ll dash down into Mammoth Lakes, where we’ll spend the night. Dinner will likely be informal and on your own; we’ll finalize this as the run gets close.

Sunday morning we head back north from Mammoth, take a detour around the June Lake Loop, then stop for lunch in Bridgeport. After lunch, we cross Sonora Pass and head back through Sonora and then scatter and return to our lives.

What to bring:
Your radios. Don’t forget chargers and/or extra batteries; these are long days.
Snacks & Drinks. There aren’t any places to stop and grab something on the passes.
Toilet Paper (the bathrooms along the way are, shall we say, rustic in places.)
Stickers you’d like to place at a vista point
A significant portion of Saturday and Sunday are spent at higher altitudes (9000 ft).
Remember to bring plenty of water and stay hydrated.

Note: we strongly suggest booking hotel stays which are refundable. This run is at the mercy of public safety power shutoffs (2019), pandemics (2020), and fires (not yet, but the hills are dry). It’s possible we’ll have to cancel it.
