The year in review 2013

A native woman in Chiapas, Mexico

The past year proved to be yet another good one with lots of travels and adventures both near and far. The far came at the beginning of the year with a two-week trip to Chiapas, Mexico, where I visited my friend Kirsty and which allowed me to see lots of wonderful cultural, natural and historic sites.

Closer to home, I had numerous  weekend trips throughout southern and central California.  I was lucky enough to be able to make three trips up to my favorite range and spend time surrounded by the beauty of the Sierra Nevada with long weekends in both the Eastern as well as the Western Sierra. Rounding out the year, instead of heading to the mountains, as I naturally would, I opted for a coastal trip up to Big Sur and Monterey, which didn’t disappoint.

Not to be ignored were the many day and mini weekend trips to locations near Los Angeles, including Joshua Tree, San Diego and of course lots of hikes in the nearby San Gabriel Mountains.
