Weekend Update



This weekend Dani and I finally got to get our feet wet and go on a backpacking trip, just the two of us. We wanted to just do a quick overnight trip to get us back in the swing of things, and we got more than we bargained for. We went to hike the Piedra Blanca Trail (named after the amazing White Cliffs you hike through) in the Los Padres National Forest, near Ojai, CA. We attempted to hike up the Pine Mountain Lodge campground at about 6400' but we stopped about 2 miles short and decided to bed down at a small campground we had passed about a quarter mile back. Which turned out to be great, because we were the only people for miles around, and there was nobody playing Tom Petty on their iPhones next to us (as we experienced last camp out), or disturbing us whatsoever. Just us, God, and nature, it was great. We have resolved however to go back and with a slightly earlier start to the day, complete the climb up to Pine Mountain Lodge, can't wait.

Look at my amazing leg on fire trick!

That little spot on that rock on the bottom is my wife.
