    There is nothing more relaxing than a good hike or a rock climb. You get dirty and learn things, about yourself and nature.

    Summer In SF

    Now that summer is just about here the temperatures in SF are dropping. I'm relatively new to the area and I don't think I'll ever get used to it. I just stocked up on warm cycling gear so I don't freeze to death while I ride...in July and August. So weird, but sometimes fun.

    Glowing crescent in an inky black sky pricked

    with stars. Sharp cold. The sting of woodsmoke scenting the air. A dusting of snow in the grass sparkling in the pools of light. No birdsong to herald the new day. No golden haze on the horizon. Just the sound of my footsteps in the still dark. I can still smell the smoke on my...
