Hiking deep into the Siskiyou Mountains of Northern California provides an escape into a wilderness so raw and isolated that it feels otherworldly. Immense granite monoliths emerge from the shallow rocky soils as ice cold mountain stream flow in sheets over the polished rocks. Towering ancient conifer trees grip tightly to the cracks in the bedrock, seeming to defy gravity as they lean at precious angles every which way. The texture of the stone and wood defines the landscape. As I look down to check the time just before the sun rises, I pause to appreciate this brief moment of stillness.
