The dry view from Mammoth Mountain, Soph in front

I am in the midst of 25 days of vacation, the last four of which have been spent wrestling with a serious case of the flu. The rest have been spent going to the bay area, OC for Christmas, and then Mammoth Lakes for some snow play.

In two days, Columbia Sportswear is going to send me to Park City to hang out with 9 other OmniTen bloggers to do what? Only Columbia knows. I’ve been told they are going to be giving me even more gear on top of the gear they’ve given me already. And then ~30 more bloggers are going to show up mid week for something called the Omnigames. I can’t say enough about Columbia’s generosity in every interaction I’ve had with them.

What’s coming up?

  • Several trip reports from recent excursions
  • The obligatory Best of 2013 Photos post
  • Plenty of gear reviews of the gear that Columbia gave me, among others
  • My recent fascination into Chumash Art

Stay tuned and thanks for reading.

Hiking Santa Barbara, San Diego, and beyond, one peak at a time. I encourage people to get outside, promote stewardship of the outdoors, and engage people in the spirit of the wilderness. Feel free to reach out to me with questions.


  1. Holy cow, that’s Mammoth Lakes?! Where’s the snow?! :-/

    Also, I like Columbia gear. I have a great pair of very comfy hiking shoes from them, and my zip-pants are good too. I didn’t look for that brand, but it happened to be just what I needed. Or maybe my subconscious picked a name that I was familiar with, from reading your blog. ;-)
