Winston Peak and Winston Ridge

After parking at the little dirt lot at Cloudburst Summit, we began our hike on the small trail off Angeles Crest Hwy (Hwy 2). If you are facing the fire road, this trail is on your left.  430 more words


Sunset at Mt Williamson

One of my adventure goals for this summer was a sunset hike in the Angeles National Forest. I picked Mt Williamson (8,214′). Total length of the hike is only 5 miles and since it’s doesn’t get dark instantly after the sunset, we would need to hike back in dark less than 2.5 miles. 703 more words


Switzer Falls

This short moderate hike is one of the most popular hikes in L.A. I highly recommend doing it super early in the morning or on a weekday if that’s feasible. 499 more words


Sunday ride around the mountain

I planned a ride this Sunday morning with a couple of friends; one of them (J) used to ride more and is very fit but hasn’t done anything much more than a mile commute for a year or so the other (N) is a top end cyclist who lives and breathes cycling, I’m in the middle so it’s a bit of a spread in levels. 499 more words

Mt Baden-Powell via PCT

I couldn’t honestly call myself an author, though I always will be at heart. Inspiration is fickle and often do we part.

Perhaps the downside of happiness is that it doesn’t draw me to the pen, but with every lesson in life, I will return again. 89 more words
