Back to Anza-Borrego

When I was younger, I was all about the new and unexplored. It still exists within me, but these days I seem to get the most enjoyment out of the known. Those pair of trees that are perfect for my hammock, that bit of road that gives just the right amount of speed to hear […]

A Drizzly Ride

Due to all of the Covid stuff, it’s been a long time since I’ve been out on my bike. On Saturday, I decided it was an ok time to get out, and I wasn’t going to let a little drizzle get in my way. Posted a few more pics on my adventure zindrop.

Carrizo Badlands Loop

It’s been a while, and I’ve been itching to play in the desert. It’s hard to balance being a parent, a desire to sit on my rear and do nothing, and the always-burning drive to do little (or big) adventures. This day was a good mix of all — I slept in a bit, made […]

We have even managed a few backpacking trips in the Sierras with our little one. However, with the exception of some of the […]

Dripping Springs Loop

There were definitely times where I muttered to myself that I would never do this trail again. It wasn’t the elevation gain, but the lower reaches were quite crowded, and the top portion was extremely brushy, for a couple miles. Not only were you plowing through brush, in some places your were hunched over, nearly […]

Tenaja Canyon Trail

It can be hard to see in these times of stupidity, just how lucky we are. Trump just led the charge to reduce the size of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument — a place that has been protected for the past 21 years, the majority of my life. National parks and monuments, I had assumed were […]
