Trailspotting.com a Site for Trail Reviews

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

I stumbled across a cool site today that hits close to home. The site, Trailspotting.com, provides reviews of hiking trails, snowshoeing trails and ski trails for Northern California and the world.

Being a native Northern Californian I can appreciate a site dedicated to discovering the beauty of NorCal.

Being a web designer and developer, I can also appreciate the simple design and elegant approach they have taken.

Being a native Tahoian (South Lake Tahoe to be precise), I can especially appreciate the reviews they have compiled on a few of my home town resorts.

Trailspotting.com, hope to see you on the mountain.

Mammoth Mountain – California

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

The Mammoth Mountain trail map does not do it any justice. That hill is so large that its hard to capture the actual scale of it. I’ve probably spent about 20 days on that mountain and have yet to see all that it offers.

I do like the way that they offer a printable PDF, but really… who wants to print a trail map on printer paper.

The detail in the background of the trail map is unbelievable. I bet if you look closely you can see Yosemite.
