the ultimate

this weekend was usual in how epic it was. it rated approximately a 12 on the living the dream scale which usually goes only to 10. we walked around in panoche hills and some other areas south of here, sort of like lewis and clark, looking for animals. here is what the place looked like:

one animal we saw: golden eagle. pete and i are becoming bird watchers. deal with it.

after a lot of tramping around, navigating with some very poor map and compass skills, we went to mercey hot springs and sat in the hot tubs and turned into sulfur rocks. it was pretty freaking fantastic. i am very tired. another picture, taken by the person who DIDN’T break his camera on a trip to corvallis over christmas:
