“Date Day” (Sycamore Canyon Falls – June 1, 2019)

Actually, the scrambling up to the top of the falls wasn’t very trivial as I had to grip some sloping hard-rock surfaces that could easily be difficult to get a grip, especially if wet…

“The Gathering” (Sturtevant Falls – May 27, 2019)

It didn’t even matter that some of them had the forest service pass on their dashboards or hanging from their rear-view mirror. The cops also got them for parking over the traffic lines so trying…

“Salvaging Experiences” (Joshua Tree and Tahquitz Falls – May 17, 2019 to May 19, 2019)

…the kids were playing Pharoah or something like that where Joshua buried himself in the sand by camp. Clearly he was oblivious to the fact that he wasn’t going to shower for another night…

Bay Area Spring Break Itinerary – April 18, 2019 to April 24, 2019

Our Bay Area Itinerary covered a week-long Spring Break trip to both the northern and southern San Francisco Bay featuring iconic highlights and waterfalls.

Pomponio Falls

Pomponio Falls is an unassuming 25ft waterfall within Memorial County Park where coastal redwood trees dominate the campground near Pescadero, California.

“Spring Breaking By The Bay” (The San Francisco Bay Area – April 18, 2019 to April 24, 2019)

…Julie and Tahia made it back to the room as they were returning from their day out. Julie told me about a scary moment when an Uber driver ran the red light and they almost got broadsided…

“Big Differences” (Escondido Falls – April 7, 2019)

Not recalling that I had to go that far up to continue the ascent, I briefly descended to where there was a familiar steep climb though it definitely lacked the vegetation that I swore was there…

“Marching Forward” (Tenaja Falls – March 31, 2019)

She suddenly started to do things like picking her nose and smearing the byproducts onto me. Or she would be snacking on puffs and leaving crumbs everywhere…

“Along The Way” (Paradise Falls – March 24, 2019)

Julie quickly handed Tahia a spare plastic bag, and roughly a few minutes later, she hurled into the bag. The foul smell of bile and other stomach acids or other nasty things definitely didn’t…

“All of L.A.” (Lake Elsinore and Ortega Falls – March 17, 2019)

We also saw lots of cars looking for parallel parking and that parking situation looked pretty hopeless. It kind of made me wonder if we should abandon our attempts at…
