Adventures in My Own Backyard.

Yesterday, my roommate Adam said he had hit a wall with a paper he is writing, and so I slyly said, “You know what would really clear your head? A hike!”  I’ve been dying to go for a hike lately.  We live minutes away from lots of beautiful hikes in the Canyon.  Sadly, although hiking was one of my favorite summer/fall pastimes in Oregon, and hiking is possible year round in California, I have only went on two hikes since I’ve lived here (three years!).  The first hike was the weekend I moved in to our apartment in January.  The second one was yesterday.

It was a solid uphill hike, and it wiped us out.  I am SO sore today.  Additionally, I forgot sunblock so I have pretty bad sunburns on my shoulders.

I’m always itching to get out and travel to new places, and there is so much beauty to be discovered so close by!

  1. Wow! That’s gorgeous – especially the first photo.

    By the way, I was so interested by your Paris trip that you wrote about awhile back that John and I have made reservations for dessert at the place near Trocadero :o)

  2. The first pic is the canyon I drive through every morning on the way to school. So pretty!!

    So great that you are going to Paris!! When are you going??

  3. What a great drive!

    We’re heading there May 22-25 to celebrate our 1-year anniversary. Our anniversary isn’t until May 31st, but John has a 4-day weekend the 22-25 because of Memorial Day, so we’re celebrating early.
