Winter 2012 and 2013 Trip ideas

So now that summer of 2012 is coming to an end and the hiking season is slowly edging away I am starting to mentally plan out where the next adventure will take us.

Some places that I have in mind for the remainder of this year are Redwood Nation Forest to see the Giant Redwood trees.  These trees are some of the tallest on earth and so large that you can even drive through some of them!

Redwood National Forest would offer camping and easy day hiking to see some of the trees and wonderful Northern California scenery.

For the early part of 2013 I would like to visit Zion National Park.  Zion offers a vast wilderness to explore and a 4  or 5 day backpacking trip I think would be in order.  That would allow our group to see the narrows (pictured Below) and Angels landing (also pictured below) as well as an escape surrounded by majestic sandstone and vast expanses.

 For the summer of 2013 I plan to make it to the summit of Mt. Whitney again!  I will have to apply in the lottery during February but even if I dont get selected I can always get canceled permits or look online for cancellations.

The later part of 2013 I want to hike the Grand Canyon or maybe attempt Mt. Whitney in the winter time.  Hopefully there will be lots of camping and hiking opportunities the rest of this year and through 2013!

Feel free to share some places that you plan to go or would like to go in the comment section!
