A beautiful day in a beautiful place

Tanya and I spent a few hours Sunday morning heading up to Mt. Baldy. It was a great day to get out and experience nature. I haven't run much since the SD100 so this hike was a nice wake up call. We plan on visiting Yosemite National park at the end of the month to hike the Half Dome, so I needed to reawaken my legs. I also needed to get some sun on my new bald head! I figured with a new aerodynamic dew I would be faster (smile).

That is where we are heading. This is a view from in the Baldy bowl. In the winter Alpine skiers hike up with skies on their backs and ski down.

Relaxing on one of the many incredibly large pines that make their home in the Angeles Forest. I hear pines in Yosemite are double this size!

Wow look at that head!!

Yosemite’s Half Dome hike is a superb adventure. I've done it 22 times. The views and sense of accomplishment are worth it. Folks need to prepare though...it's not a walk-in-the-park. Water, boots, hiking poles and gloves for the cables - and be in top shape! I've written the only hiking guide to Half Dome and suggest it for you. It is called "One Best Hike: Yosemite's Half Dome.”

PS love the james Brownmusic. Any problemwith "royalties"?

Carpe Diem - Seize the Day!!
