Celebrate Black Friday with friends at Tuna Canyon Park

As someone who enjoys his occasional blatant consumerism, I spent this year’s favorite shopping day in much more serene surroundings.  After an incredible brunch with friends in Topanga Canyon, we journeyed on to Tuna Canyon Park.  The air was so clear we could see for miles, even all the way to downtown Los Angeles.  After the sun set, Sushi (and Sake).  What a wonderful day.

Markets, Trails, and Car Trouble!

We went to an amazing farmers market in Eugene to fuel up for a wonderful hike. Wonderful trails and great bird watching. Got some great photos. Then it was off to portland (after a snack). I managed to get us lost and eventually blazed my own trail (where i shouldn’t have) and was left with 2 flat tires. my roadside assistance plan hooked us up with the craziest tow truck driver ever. a great guy from san diego who was excited to see other californians. He towed us to costco and even hung out for a while waiting for our friend. Thanks again Denise! After that we snacked at Burgerville a eco friendly (and delicious) fast food joint. And nested at Denise’s place. here are some photos. Now i’m off to Costco to get some new tires and then we’ll explore the city. i hear they have a giant bookstore here.
