News / Hike
The recent earthquake in California got me thinking of a couple of things and as with any natural disaster or major emergency it never hurts to take a look and asses your level of preparedness.
About ten minutes north of our store is an amazing place to day hike, Pamo Valley in Ramona California. The valley has been a favorite of mine for years...
This week’s adventure had us exploring the San Gabriel Mountains and the Bridge to Nowhere in the Angeles national Forrest.
I was very fortunate to have grown up in Carmel on California’s central coast, the amount of bio diversity and natural beauty in such a small location is amazing. I know there is a lot to do and places to see but one of my favorite little secrets is Carmel River State Beach (the river mouth) and Stewart’s Cove.
I have packed a lot of miles under these boots, I climbed Mt Whitney in them, hiked the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and just completed a marathon with a forty pound pack as well as countless day trips and overnight trips in between.
Over the past few years light weight trail gaiters have also become popular among hikers for keeping out those pesky pebbles and foxtails.
This trip found us in New Mexico participating in the Bataan Memorial Death March. The Death March “is more than just a marathon” it takes place at the White Sands Missile Range just outside of Los Cruses
