    There had to be a lot of fun to be had body... and maybe a wee bit of trouble too.
    Happy Trails to one and all.
    Enjoy the outdoors wisely and elevate your perspective.

    If you want to watch them way more close up than you can get to at that place, I'll give you detailed directions where you walk right up to them. It's a location where there are more of them anyway but you can't see them from the highway! I go there at times and bring my large format camera to photograph them giving birth and stuff. I witnessed quite an interesting birthing take place once where mama darn near threw her pup out hahah. More on that story over a campfire after the kids go to bed.

    I agree. I recall the difference in feeling that I used to have going to the Central Coast when I was living in Los Angeles (I'm a LA transplant). I recall even the dreary days where there's nothing interesting under the thick coastal layer and no wind to clear it away from the coast directly at the coast so you can't even see the water, those days were still like magic compared to any day in Los Angeles. But now, these things are ordinary daily life for me, and I like it.

    What an honor that would be! I've got a couple of loop trips in mind for that sort of thing. 2 - 3 day trips and some maybe even more than that with a base camp kind of setup with day hikes stemming from base camp.

    Welcome to the new obsession!
    Awesome, I will be sure to look for that when I can spend more time online. Have you spent any time at Dutra Flat?

    Hey BigSur!

    I miss SLO... I'm a CalPoly alum as well. I wish I was into what I am now when I was there. Man... the perfect place for backpacking and camping. I was all into the beach and hiking, but didn't think to stay out there.

    Welcome.

    Hello from Charleston. SC
    I may be lost but I am making great time.
