North Rim Grand Canyon

Three free days, hmm, what do with them?   They were during the week so nobody else was available to join in, not a problem though.  The decision was more along the lines of, given my limited number of days to take a road/camping trip, where do I really want to […]

Hungry Valley SVRA

About an hour north of Los Angeles is Frazier Mountain containing a large number of great 4×4 trails.  My friend Daniel and I took a day-trip up to this area on Sunday only to find that the entire mountain and all of its trails were closed for the winter.  I […]
