Sandstone Peak – April 22, 2011

March 26th, 2014 by

We should own a house on Friday. I know, right? Craziness. Anyway! April, 2011, we went for a nice piece of a hike to Sandstone Peak, in the Santa Monica Mountains. It was a super fabulous beautiful, and a nice 6+ mile hike I was happy to finally kick out. With only just over 1000′ of gain, it was still enough of a walk to be worth the effort.

Let’s go for a walk.

California, Google, Skiing squaw, April 4-10, 2011

March 10th, 2014 by

Winter seems to maybe, kind of, be slowly abating. Next weekend I’m headed down to the city to see some family; here’s hoping that after I make it back we’ll be into the full swing of spring. One can hope. Anyway – here is some discussion of a trip I took around California a few years back (Kate! If you’re reading this, this is from April *2011*. Don’t get confused now). I headed up to the Bay Area for some job interview action, checked out the Google campus, saw some friends, then went out for a ski weekend in Tahoe with Jen and Nathan – and we met up with Joe and his brother August while we there. In that year, Squaw had had 450″ of snow at the base of the mountain by April, and 700″ at the summit. Ye gads.

Malibu Parks – March 27, 2011

March 1st, 2014 by

Man. March in western NY is way freaking colder than in California. Not that I miss it or anything. Wait now… Anyway. Packed the first box today…I mean, moving in like 6-10 weeks, so, sure. Why not. The owner of our current rental has been getting it painted for the last week, so it’s looking all new and fresh. Anyway, time to delve into the past, for a good day out in the Santa Monica Mountains.

We had a day! I’m not sure how I picked these places (…I’m not even 100% sure I picked them in advance), but either way, Nathan and Greg and I headed out to some of the various parks in an around Malibu (fine, closer to Agoura Hills…), as most of the Angeles were still closed off after the Station Fire. We hit up Paramount Ranch (which is actually part of the Santa Monica Mountains NRA), and Malibu Creek State Park. Afterwards we got some food and beer, and all in all had a pretty fine. day.

Note – there are to be no martinis, do you hear me? None.

To the fields!
