Backpacking in Sespe Wilderness

We had a foursome of Hiking Club members for this 30-mile Memorial Day weekend hike in Sespe Wilderness (in the coastal range of Ventura County). We camped at Willett Hot Springs for two nights, and hiked to Sespe Hot Springs on the middle day. On the hike back, we made good midday use of an awesome swimming hole in Sespe Creek. Here are a few photos.

Backpack Trip at Grand Canyon

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the recent Grand Canyon trip. This was a 5-day rim-to-rim-to-rim trip with hiking friend Nina on the SK-NK-BA route. And although the weather was unsettled, it was never hot, and it made the trip and the pictures all the more interesting. We even got snowed on twice. You can also view my 5Mb Quicktime video here.
