Track Day / Life Journal: I haven’t posted on here in a while. Just wanna share a little bit of what I’ve been working on for the past year. New band. New sounds. Annnd, most importantly, I’m really really enjoying it! So take a listen if you’re ever so curious to some psychedelic garage rock sounds. If not that’s ok too. Thanks for taking the time…

Photo Journal: This past Sunday I went on a really epic hike to the summit of Mt. Baldy at 10,064’ (3068 m) and wanted to share the pictures with you. First off, I was not dressed properly for the occasion. It has been sweltering hot here in southern CA for the past 2 weeks and I didn’t realize that the elevation change would make such a difference in temperature. My friend made the same mistake and we showed up with a T-shirt and shorts. My best friend was well prepared. People were in full rain gear staring at us like we were crazy or maybe because we are all hafus, haha. But we decided screw it, lets do it. We started at 6000’ (1829 m) around 0900. The map was kind of unclear on how tough the trail was going to be to the top. It was really steep and I’m surprised my legs didn’t give out from being out of shape. Its been the toughest hike I’ve done so far hands down. We made it to the top around 1300 and it was crazy! Its basically like we were in the clouds. It was very rewarding getting to the summit let me tell you. We enjoyed the top for a bit and then made our way down a different trail called the Devil’s Backbone.  With the thick fog and this rock-only terrain it really did look like we had teleported to another country in the middle of no where. I didn’t take any pictures in this area because it was very steep and we were focused on our footing. Anyways just went we got the ski lodge, it started to rain, HARD. And this is when that freak storm hit Mt. Baldy. We decided to take the chair lift down to the parking lot and thank god we did so. As we were leaving in our cars, flash floods started and all types of debris started shooting out onto the road. I’d never seen anything like it. All the cars were trying to leave but we were all driving slow avoiding the rocks and miscellaneous debris that had been dumped onto the 2 lane highway. We got out of there just in time, around 1530, because it ended up getting worse. Here is the story:

Anyways, it was an incredible experience and I thought I’d share with you all.
