Oats Peak Attempt #1

I'm tired, hot, sunburned, probably a little dehydrated ... but I had fun. ;P

I did some exploring along the Oats Peak trail in Montana de Oro this afternoon. I think I was out for about 2.5 hours, in sun, without sunscreen. ;P I didn't encounter a single other soul on the trail ... it was wonderful.

I even took my shirt off and thus got sunburned. (No, you don't get pictures of that. I don't know why you'd want them, anyway. :P)

I was originally intending to go all the way out to Oats Peak (which is a bit over twice as far as Valencia, I think) ... but my body started bitching at me in a not-happy way (i.e. my boots started giving me hot spots) a bit over 1/2 of the way in, so I decided to do the smart thing and came out early.

Anyway, I did take some pictures, which got thrown up in Gallery.

I wish I had time for this "hiking" thing more often. I like going out, without having to worry about other people or other shit to do, or whatever ... and just hiking.

>>>

Speaking of Gallery, I finally got all my old photo albums imported. Gallery's a pretty nice system, for a PHP program. :p

Yeesh! Yes, good luck. Wear sunscreen (i.e. don't follow my example ;) ), and take lots of water. And maybe even some moleskin for your feet, should you start to get hot spots.

I missed the sunscreen on my ears last time (who thinks about the tops of ears?!) and got very crispy there. Literally. It was nasty. So I will be more careful with the SPF 30 this time :)

I see from your gallery you are trying to take the crown of Hippie away from Casey.

Totally.

He can still be the terrorist, though. I've decided I'm going to take over the world using subtler methods than terrorism. ;P
