I keep seeing proposals for the San Diego Sports Arena District (like this one
). Some of them are great. I would actually love to see some bigger thinking here as well.

We decided this week to explore two canyons, both within walking distance of home. Maple Canyon On Saturday we did a four mile loop, making our way down […]
