Campfire Attire.

IMG_5472_2Summer nights in the Bay Area (San Francisco specifically) aren’t particularly warm, so it’s a great opportunity to have a bonfire or a small wood fire in your backyard. It’s a little hard to shoot pictures at night so you’ll have to pretend that I am around a fire here!

I’m ready for Summer to officially start! Aren’t you?

Castle Rock


This past weekend a few of us backpacked out in Castle Rock to camp overnight. It’s a lot of fun to get out of the city and into somewhere really peaceful. Castle Rock is known for some of the cool bouldering spots but we didn’t try that just yet! Take a look at some of the beauty we saw.


(The sun set through the trees around 7:30)


(The hike was picturesque. Like something out of a fairy tale!)


(There were little streams running everywhere. I love the sound of  streaming water, it is very calming)


(Hawks were circling around something down below)


(We saw a deer nibbling on grass as we walked by)


(There were so many rocks to climb on top of. It was like being on top of the world!)


(A coincidence. I didn’t do this to our picnic table)


(The boys actually started a fire without a match or lighter!)


(We roasted marshmallows and drank wine, it was a lot of fun!)


I really like hiking through Northern California because it is cold and refreshing! I love the sounds at night (there are none!) and the fact that you get so much space to yourself, who could ask for more?
