Dictionaries will tell you that an expedition is a purpose-driven journey, and the term brings to mind epic voyages to new lands:
- The earliest days of exploration when not-yet-charted territories were mapped with the warning “Here Be Dragons”
- The first romanticizing of “Out West” when Lewis, Clark & the rest of the Corps of Discovery made their overland journey to the Pacific Ocean
- The race to the Poles
- The quest for the top of the world, and Edmund Hillary’s first successful summit of Mount Everest
We’re explorers of a different sort. Our expeditions are road trips, and our territory is the Sierra Nevada: Yosemite, Tahoe, Sequoia/Kings Canyon, Gold Country, the Lost Sierra and all points in between.
TerraNovaSierra is our tribute to the mountains we find magnetic and others who fell under their spell.
