Snowshoeing at Mt. Baldy – March, 2012

August 29th, 2015 by

We’ve had a few days of weather reminding us that fall is approaching, and term has started already for Nathan, but the summer weather appears to be back for a few weeks now. So, in honor of appreciating the last few weeks of summer, let’s talk about snow in LA, yes?

March 18 – 2012, I went with Jenny, and we went and walked around at Mt. Baldy a bit (around Manker Flats, the waterfall, and the fireroad). It was another example of the variability I love to see in the outdoors you can experience in the greater LA area – if you’re willing to take advantage of it. Or if someone calls you up and encourages you to take advantage of it 🙂

Let’s go take a walk in the snow!

Joshua Tree – Christmas Day, December 2011

August 25th, 2015 by

How…did I not post this? Ok, so, we’re coming into the end of summer, work’s being all a thing, and hey, it’s time to get photos, blog, and everything in order, right? Right? Yeah, I buy it. So! I went looking for the next post, and I saw this title in the drafts, and realized it had never been posted so now it is horribly out of order, and I shudder with shame. Please absolve me. I realize that I likely didn’t write this up because, well, I have never had much written up for it. Long and short of it, I went out to JTree for a day, Christmas Day as a matter of fact, met up with some Caltech folk, climbed one rock, failed to climb another rock, and ate some Chinese food. All in all, an acceptable day I would say.

Joshua Tree just doesn’t look real, does it?

Shall we take a look? Let’s look at winter rocks in the desert. Just photos ; no text
