Tram to Mount San Jacinto

I joined Kat and her new husband, Cameron, for what I’d personally call a very challenging hike this past Saturday. We took the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, and then hiked a fairly steep trail through a pine forest at high altitude. I pasted some information from the tram website below for those interested. If you’re […]

Left or Right

This seagull and I had quite the conversation during my recent visit to La Jolla near San Diego. He was insistent I tell him whether his left or right profile was more photogenic.

Fair Food

(11 photos) The County Fair has a reputation for crazy food, but it seems this year was even crazier than my last visit…the word food should be used lightly! Wandering around the food booths, I must admit not having had a clue what to buy for my dinner. I ended up with a corn dog on a […]

As he paddled into shore and got […]
