Sequoia National Forest, just a little something the government shutdown is depriving its people of. This and healthcare.
Photos are from July 2013 =).
95% Vegan Camping (becausewe had Think Thin bars…they are the best protein bars!!! and isolated whey doesn’t make me as sick as whole dairy products)
Here’s a list of the food items we brought:
Foil Packets are awesome!! We just chopped up our vegetables, seasoned them with spices and olive oil, and folded them into heavy duty foil. Then, we just threw the packets into the fire! The sweet potatoes took the longest to cook so we started with those. For the patties and pita bread, we just placed them on a sheet of foil and heated them up on the grill. Everything cooked between 10-25 minutes. The corn cooked the fasted.
The corn was SO good. Something about camping and corn-on-the-cob (and PB&J sandwiches) feels so satisfying and makes me a happy camper! Ben and I were both happy campers this night with our fire-pit feast. Building a fire for the first time was really fun too! The first night, all the main campgrounds were full so we had to go deep in the woods, pretty much in the backcountry, in Cedar’s Grove to pitch our tent. No fires are allowed there so we were elated when we got a central campsite that allowed fire!

Terrarium Planting: Date idea that isn’t “going to dinner”
Point Reyes: 11 mi hike to Alamere Falls and back
My friends and I have been pretty tied to our summer research, but we’ve had time to take day excursions and weekend trips out of the city in search of blue skies. If social activities are going to limit my time to work-out, we better we doing something active!
So this is Ben. And the guy who looks like brunette Napoleon Dynamite is John. They talk about working-out a lot…usually ending with their motto, “getting big.”
How has your summer been going? What’s the best stay-cation you’ve had?
Send me your thoughts!
Just discovered that my neighbor has a gigantic grapefruit tree in their front yard…right off the sidewalk…runs before dawn are sounding pretty good now. #sneaky #fruit #nature (Taken with Instagram)
Hike & Seek
I’ll be hiking and canyon exploring in Death Valley, CA next week and I’m just starting to put together my rations and supplies. This is what I’m planning on eating during my 4 days, 3 nights trip considering I’ll have boiling water, some cooking equipment, and limited cooler space:
It’s about hiking! I love hiking…but don’t do it alone starting at 6pm because of mountain lions. I got kind of nervous today after reaching the top of hill that I just sprinted down praying that I would get to the parking lot safely.
Hi everyone, I just wanted to share with you something that makes me smile everyday. This is my favorite tree in the world which I admire everyday on my walk to class. There’s more patches of orange day after day. Seeing this once a day is enough to lift my spirits. Doesn’t take much.
Great, a new Queen Bee decided to move her hive right off the trail I run Tuesdays and Thursdays…
Sometimes the person we want to be seems so far out of reach. But really, you don’t have to wait at all to be that person. From the minute you wake up, do things that this stronger, healthier version of yourself would do. Then, you already are who you want to be defined as.
Try running at dusk when the sky changes around you. I was even able to see a group of doe on my 5-6ish mile run today =)
