Yeah, I was pretty hesitant at first. Camping with a 10 month old seemed like misery, but I also really wanted to see some mountains. To walk in alpine meadows. To look at the stars.

Looking for ways to inject small bits of adventure into our daily lives...

Blue skies, great temps, and snakes.

Today was a hike to a mountain lake, which is pretty nice since it's mid-April and mountain lakes in the Northwest aren't supposed to melt out until July.

Last week: walking through cactus, yucca, and a sparse desert landscape to a hidden palm oasis. This week: walking along a rushing, clear, and cold river, through tall trees and a totally lush and verdant understory. Quite the change.

I really didn't have a plan today, other than explore some of the maze of trails at Cuyamaca State Park. I ended up creating a nice 12.5 mile loop, that took me up near to the top Cuyamaca Peak.

Sometimes when it's 45 degrees and sprinkling, and you're wearing shorts, it's the universe trying to tell you that you should be somewhere else. Sometimes you're rewarded for listening.

I need adventure. I haven't been able to do any large adventures recently, so for now, small, one-day explorations will have to do. These aren't necessarily always about exploring new stuff, but more like exploring new ways of doing the familiar...

Today we saw the Surrealisme! exihibit at the Tokyo National Art Center, which had works by Magritte, Dali, Max Ernst, and Marcel Duchamp...

Wow. Tokyo is a cool city...somewhat of sensory overload on a massive scale. So much to see, so much to do....
We started walking north from the Mexican Border. Six months and over 2600 miles later, we emerged several miles into Canada. Along the way, we walked through deserts, dense forests, and spectacular mountains.
Missing the scenery and freedom experienced on the PCT, we set off again to walk. This time, we spent a month hiking through Colorado from Denver to Durango. The scenery was great and the weather was wild!
Early in 2011, we had the privelage of spending three months in Japan. We sampled much of the country, spending time in Nagoya, Tokyo, Osaka, Hakata, and Kagoshima.
