⊃ hiking pescadero

I had a very nice walk around Pescadero Creek SP after a week of rain. From the Tarwater Trailhead I took the Tarwater Trail Loop west and then south to the camp – it was quite swampy down there. Of six sites I think two were kinda nice. And you could sorta rappel down to the creek which might be nice in the summer. I returned via the Pomponio Ridge and Upper Coyote Ridge trails, about six miles total. Took me about 2hrs 45min, I believe.

⊃ the John Muir Trail

My buddy Will and I did a short trip on the John Muir Trail in the Sierras. We camped near Florence Lake – right here actually: 37.2324891N, -118.8780362W. I remember because we camped right near that logjam north of the river.
