Onion Valley to Charlotte Lake (CA) This is still on my wish list. This trail is characterized by the many lakes it touches. Initially it climbs up to Kearsarge Pass (3607 m). The view from the pass looks promising on the map. The trail then leaves the bear territory (take canisters) as it leads down into another basin dotted with little lakes. Leave early to avoid the crowds, as the first basin is within easy reach of day hikers. The Onion Valley (2804 m) trail head. Go west from Independence 15 miles to the road-end parking lot. Description, elevation and map.

Endurance Running My 1995 endurance running calculator for personalized training tables. Good intentions? Marathon? In 1995, I plunged into a ¼-marathon. An experience I will never forget. Forty-six minutes of blood sweat and tears before I passed that long awaited finish line. I held on to a railing while regaining an awareness of my surroundings. This taught me an invaluable lesson: “never, never again”. During the exercise laps, I ran like hell. I was not satisfied until I was beat. The training was no fun. I clearly needed a better approach. I found this while training for the City Pier City ½-marathon at a Road Runners club in Holland. This article discusses some of the basic theory and presents a calculator to determine your "ideal" training paces.
