Poison Oak…again

This past weekend, I went on the shortest camping trip of my life, lasting only 9 hours (excluding travel time). On the other hand, this camping trip was the most intentional and productive trip that I’ve done. The last trip I went on was in the Sespe wilderness a little more than 2 months ago, … Continue reading

The Aftermath of Sespe

Warning: This next post contains pictures of my extremities that have been afflicted by brushes, trees, sharp desert-dwelling plants, poison ivy, and rocks. Pictures may contain images of subject matter that might make a squeamishness person even more squeamish. You have been warned. A few days after coming back from Sespe, I thought our ‘adventure’ in the wild was … Continue reading

Memorial Weekend – Sespe Creek

Old age and wisdom always beats youth and energy. I first heard of Sespe when J. Liao and I were planning on going to hike half-dome in Yosemite, a hike I had done when I was still in school but haven’t been back since. There was an issue with the permits not being transferable, so … Continue reading

The Day of Black Sun

A few days ago, L. Hui (Kreptonic) told me about the solar eclipse (when the moon’s orbit causes it to travel between the Earth and the Sun) that was going to happen in a few days. Naturally, I got very excited as I had learned about eclipses at a young age, and always wanted to … Continue reading

Ruth, Becca, Melanie, Johnny, Johnny’s 2 friends, and I hiked 4 miles to the Devil’s punch bowl, which is officially named Cedar Creek Falls. The hike … Continue reading

Potato Chip Rock

After a hellish week of sleepless nights, precious hours of daylight wasted away in a concrete imprisonment with thousands of pages of information, and forced to endure riddles that teachers give to see your understanding of the 10 weeks of material they try so hard to force into your mind, I felt it was time … Continue reading

Iron Mountain Hike

My friends Connie C., Michael C., and Timothy L. invited me to hike the Iron Mountain trail with them. Having some experience on different hikes (such as the South Cascade Canyon Trail in the Grand Tetons, WY; Random trails in Yellowstone, MT; and the infamous Half-Dome trail in Yosemite, CA to name a few), I … Continue reading
