At the end of 2013, Google did an automatic little slideshow of the pictures I’ve uploaded to Picasa and sent it to me. One of my friends told me that Sophia was the real star of the year. This is true. And because she is, it means that we spent some great times together. We’ll get to her pictures at the end of the post. First I’ll sort of go in chronological order.
First, I was able to go camping with two of my oldest friends on two separate trips. It was great to catch up and go on hikes. The first trip included camping with Reamo at Montana de Oro State Park and hiking up to Valencia Peak. The second was camping at Point Mugu State Park with the Seef.
I was able to go hiking in San Diego, for the first time in a while. I visited one of my favorite areas, Sunshine Mountain, but was completely overcome with ticks.
Over Thanksgiving week, I had a chance to hike Mount Ka’ala again, the highest point on the Island of Oahu. This time, I had a view from the peak.
In October, I got a special box that led to a trip to Park City I will never forget.
Near the end of the year, we visited San Francisco. Just before we headed back home, I snapped this pic.
The rest of the pictures either feature Soph, or are taken by her.
