High Sierra Backpacker's News
 Man and Nature

November 2017

November
of
2017

Happenings in the relationship between Man and Nature affecting our hike down life's trail through both worlds. We study both the reality created by humans and the uncreated reality reflected in, and tended by Nature. 

The vast majority of our reporting on Nature comes from the American Association of Scientists summarizations of each day's bounty of the peer-reviewed research published by academic institutions and journals all around our whole world.

My focus is on everything, every living thing and natural process that we will encounter hiking from Tahoe to Whitbey. The birds, the bees, the water, the trees, and the stars at night. Among a plethora of backpacker-related topics.

You will get the latest news from the forefronts of climate, bio, Astro, and the hard sciences here, two days before it hits the corporate press, but long after they've already deeply affected Man & Nature, if the grimness of our purposeful ecological collapse even comes across the pages of the corporate press at all.

You get the real deal here.

Waves of High Haze

The biggest parts of a series of Lows and Fronts are passing to the North of us over the next five days, with the forcasted exceptions of Monday and Friday, when the bottom ends of thes Fronts and Storms will bring light rains and some snow, mostly across the North Sierra Crest.

The Weather Page

Thus this week may offer the first windows into our first snow backpacking oppertunities of the season.

The threats are first, that the storms centers and Frontal "Tails," come unexpectedly South, second, that they do not, and windows of clear skies bring colder than expected temps, and third, on the other hand, that it stays warm, and sloppy semi-frozen rainy snow falls across the Sierra Crest, which is always challenging in freezing conditions.

Stormy Weather Coming

A Huge Low is sitting up in Gulf Alaska, dragging a vast plume of tropical moisture Northeast. 

That's the persistant location of the High-Low formation that set up, "The Blob," from 2013-15.

More Blob

That Low's predicted trajectory to the Southeast should drag some snow across the Sierra by late Wednesday or early Thursday.

 On September 15 the temps and conditions shifted enough to require shifting our gear setup from Summer to Fall gear kits.

FALL GEAR CHANGE UPON US,
Sept 15, 2017.

Now we've hit the Winter Line, and we've got to deploy the necessary elements of our Winter Gear Kit. Not the whole thing, but some serious Winter gear needs to come out now.
