calFrom the Camp Pendleton Mud Run, our motley of vikings.

It’s the cradle of life. It’s the center of civilization. Over the ages, and throughout the world, men have fought for it. Battled for it. Even died for it. One might say it’s the most powerful thing on earth.

Hail to the V!

All these years of living in California and I thought I had almost seen it all. I guess this shows that anything can be new if you just change your perspective. Playing with ISO 200 above LA at Griffith Observatory.

I love the feel of the new grown-up Google offices. This is the one in the Binoculars building just steps from Venice Beach.

Big Sur Bakery and Esalen are my musts on any trip down the coast. Tip: You can sneak into the Esalen grounds by parking oceanside and walking down.

zoom I can’t believe that it’s taken me this long to discover the Marin Headlands. When you’re not feeling up for the hour-long drives to Point Reyes or Mount Tam, the Headlands make for easy hikes and stunning views…or as I like to put it, low investment, high return :)

zoom Nearly got myself run over chasing down this streetcar on MUNI’s F-line. Apparently it’s an open-air “boat tram" from Blackpool, England. It’s my mission to ride one of these suckers before I leave SF (if I leave SF), even I have to charter it myself!

Hurricane Rina may have put a damper on my vacation, but I didn’t let it dampen my spirit! On one of the last days of our Indian Summer, we headed to what I consider to be the gem of all Marin hikes: Alamere Falls. It was just us and a seal this Thursday around.
