Exploring nature and the backcountry should be a fun experience for everyone. San Diego and Southern California offer a wide variety of opportunities for every one of all abilities.

Had a little Friday adventure in La Jolla, after a Friday morning appointment I found myself over that way and figured I would try out the hiking seen over there.

Happy New Year from Kit Fox Outfitters, and what a year we had in 2019 and are looking forward to 2020!
