Outside Comic Con 2016

I sort of went to comic con again this year. I saw some awesome costumes on children, dogs, and full grown adult men. Quite a success, and well worth the trolley pass. 

I even ran into a few friends who were doing kind of the same thing.

Mount Woodsen: Tower 2

My peeps and I have been going to mount wooden on sunday evenings lately. It has been amazing. The sun setting is a parameterizing event, and we know we only have 3 hours to get the climbs in. Toady we went to Tower Two in Mount Woodsen and climbed both the off width (5.8) and the thin face (5.10a) next to it. I felt so strong today. I don't think anything else in life makes me happier.

A few photos to follow.

Hiking Mount Whitney


Mount whitney is the tallest peak in the lower 48 states. At 14,508ft elevation and 22 miles out and back, it took me no less than 16 hours to complete. I started at 4:30 am (waking up at 3!) only to get back by 8:30pm. I spent every moment of daylight on Thursday July 28th on that mountain.

It was worth every second.

Even when I was delirious, hallucinating from elevation sickness, my head throbing from built up pressure, I thought it was worth it. There is so much natural beauty in the world.

This is a long post. there are 122 photos after the jump that walks you through my hike.

Copious Girabaldi at La Jolla Cove


Melissa and I went snorkeling in La Jolla Cove to see our state fish, the fabulous Girabaldi. I brought my go pro. The cove was lousy with Girabaldi. Not ones to be satisfied so easily, Melissa promptly decided it was a disappointment that we did not see any leopard sharks.

We went to lunch at Burger Lounge afterwards, and then hung out at the benefit bar.

Scripps Birch Aquarium and La Jolla Cove

It was so much fun visiting the Scripps Birch Aquarium La Jolla today. Alex had a hankering for it and I found it to be a relaxing contemplative past time. I had a bit of trouble getting the autofocus to work through the glass, but I think one or two worked out nicely.

Tea for two

 I invited my neighbor over to my house for a friendly chat monday morning. I prepared tea for two for the occasion and I think the table came out beautifully.
