I'm off in California having a real vacation at a hot springs resort with some friends.
It's a great chance to get my daily exercise in a different mountainous environment and spend the rest of the time in a hammock or a pool or a hot tub. I'm really glad for a few days of downtime.
Here's the view from the summit of yesterday's hike, over an hour of 15-35% grade. Sweaty, but totally worth it.
See the smoky skies? There are lots of fires here.
Be back next week!
