Channel Islands National Park

We visited Channel Islands National Park last weekend. I’ve put up some pictures in the Channel Islands page. Overall it was not our favorite park, the hiking felt very similar to hiking the hot, dry, sun-scorched trails of Mt. Diablo, but with less shade. On the plus side we did get to see a blue whale and her calf. We may try kayaking if we go again.

Trip to South Bend

After spending most of my adult life hanging out with Notre Dame alums, I finally got to visit the campus to feel the magic for myself.

Touchdown Jesus and I.
The extent of ND branding never leaves a question as to what campus you’re on.
For some reason I really like the idea of eating at a McDonald’s above a highway.
Indiana Dunes State Park has some really neat hikes.
