Hike # 40 of 52, Colby Canyon Trail. It was good to be back in the mountains and the air was clean in the San Gabriels, but otherwise this was kind of a boring hike. And I'm behind schedule 😬

Hiked with a dear friend today but said friend didnt feel like being in said photo so here's a picture of me on a hike today sans said friend. #goldenhour
Love you mucho @thetatianacarr
What a hike! This hike is approximately 4 miles round trip but with a mile of steep incline combined with stairs.
You’ll want to wear hiking shoes, take sunscreen (there’s almost no shade), and plenty of water.
There is a couple of trails going up but stay left and look for the tower that’s where the chair will be!
P.s. my legs still feel like spaghetti

At the border of the urban wild...
Fun fact: you don't have to buy thousands of dollars of REI backpacking equipment and drive 10 hours (or get sponsored to do so) to see a sweeping view, you can actually get some pretty spectacular ones with your street sneakers and a $1.75 bus ride.
More and more people are moving from rural to urban areas every year in this country. I made that same move 20 years ago, mostly because as a gay man I didn't think I had a choice. It took me a while to get reaquianted with the nature of my youth--to realize how powerful it is and to notice that LA is literally surrounded by it--20 million people most all living an hour or less from a mountain wilderness.
We create nature advocates every time we introduce more people to nature, and nearby nature is the gateway drug. I’ll for sure post a #wanderlusting
pic now and then, but my plan is to sharing more of all this beauty that surrounds me in the now.

it’s beanie season which means I get to look pop punk all month 🤙 that’s the only reason I like cold weather. POLL: Would you rather be overly hot or freezing cold?
Taking it back to our last hike...it was a new trail for us and it was fun! (Minus the possible bear/chupacabra sighting).

Everybody needs beauty... places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul alike.~ John Muir
There’s something special about getting up in the dark to climb a mountain and witness a beautiful sunrise. I remember this day like it was yesterday. It was cold, a clear sky and you could see all the way to Catalina Island.
You could actually see the ships sailing. .
My bestie @natureexplorer1111
and I hiked 15 miles, and climbed 6000ft of elevation in 6 miles to the top of Mount Baldy for fun and for the love of nature.
Sometimes there was silence, just the sound of the birds and the peaceful breeze of the wind. There would be laughter, story telling as well. Some times we had a look on our faces, like why? Why are we doing this? But, there was so much love and passion for nature that it didn’t seem like work. It was a great feeling of accomplishment. Looking forward to some fun hiking adventures in the future.
