Back to the Mountains

I have a new challenge for myself... I want to see how many different places in the world I can submit posts to this blog from! So far I have blogged from Homer, Alaska and San Diego. To add a third location to this list, I am currently blogging from Idyllwild, California. Isn't that name (Idyllwild) awesome? I bet the name is Welsh and I honestly feel, and the landscape looks, like I have returned to Snowdonia in Northern Whales! So what am I doing in Idyllwild? Well, since I am about to start a job that will consume my weekends for the rest of the summer, I thought I should make the most of the freedom I have left! Tomorrow morning I am going to get up early and climb the 10,500 foot, Mt. San Jacinto!

I am stoked to be back in the mountains! I do love the beaches down in San Diego but I definitely miss the mountain view in Homer! It is good to be surrounded by mountains again! This town is so rustic and alpine-feeling. Sitting in a coffee shop, called the Java Lounge, sipping a Cafe Milano, and anticipating tomorrow morning's climb. Does it get any better than this?

Oh wait, I guess having friends along could slightly improve the situation but you know how it is... everybody always talks about how much they love to travel and have adventures but very few people actually the time out of their "busy" lives to actually travel. So that's fine with me, I'm not going to let that keep me from getting around. If by myself, I get time to think and can concentrate on taking good photos so its all good!
