Wheaton, Il

Paul and I visited our hometown in Illinois today, and Paul snapped this pic of me in front of the ice cream parlor we'd ride our bikes to in downtown Wheaton. We saw the houses that we lived in, our school, and lots of fun places that were part of our youth. It was a really cold day.

Canyonering in Rubio Canyon / Verdugo Hills Night Hike

I spent the morning with PCTA compadre Matt Maxon and his canyoneering friends in Rubio Canyon in the foothills of the San Gabriels. I think we were a group of seven or eight.

Here's a stitched photo of me starting down 80' Thalehaha Falls. WAHOO! Normally a lot more water pours off this falls. This was the highest of 7 rappels.

Then in the evening, a 3.6-mile hike brings our group of 14 Northrop hikers to the summit of the Verdugo Hills in LA. Here's the view looking south at downtown LA and beyond to Long Beach. I took this photo with my little Casio camera on a tripod with about a 4 second exposure.
