So me and Francisco and Yohanna decide to tackle telescope peak on the October 11th 2008. We started driving off towards Magohany Flat campground where the trail head begins at 8133ft at 9pm Friday night. It was pretty smooth driving, and lucky didn’t get lost this time. Once we were about 1/2 mile from the campsites on the unpaved road, we got stuck in the snow, twice! After digging out the snow and getting some gravel under the tires we were back on our way.

Telescope Peak May 17th 2008

Posted by admin on Jun 01, 2008 - 09:04 PM

So me and Francisco decide to tackle telescope peak on the weekend of May 17th-18th. We started driving off towards Magohany Flat campground where the trail head begins at 8133ft at 9pm friday night. While driving, Francisco mixes up the direction and we ended up driving 50 miles in the wrong direction. Thanks to my handy Black Berry with google maps we were able to get back on track without having to back track. Though we still lost about an hour of road time it could have been worse if we would have backed tracked and lost two hours. On the way the the camp ground I was getting very bored, and Francisco was already sleeping so I figure it would be a good time to start snapping some photographs.

Here is a picture of the road leading towards Magohany Flat campground.

Thailand Trip

Posted by admin on Apr 12, 2008 - 10:44 AM

So our trip to thailand begins March 28th on an overnight flight from LAX to Taipei. When we first got to LAX we were so excited that we went to the wrong gate and waited at Air China gate for about an hour before finding out we were at the wrong gate. Our airline was China Air, so you can see how easy it was to mix up. I was a bit nervous about being on a plane for 18+ hours. But once our 14:45 hour flight from LAX to Taipei was over I didn't feel so bad. It was more boring then anything else. Once we arrived at Taipei we had some good old Taiwain beer and a shitty as chicken sandwich.

Havasupai Backpacking Trip

Posted by admin on Feb 24, 2008 - 05:48 PM

My Trip to Havasupai village in AZ starts off on Friday night 02/15/08. The gang, Me, Carlos, Claudia (Sister), Paco, Yohanna begin our journey from Los Angeles. It takes us about 9 hours to get to the hilltop. We arrive around 6am.

Carlos our conductor drove us there safely. I was suppose to stay up and keep him company but even after 4 cups of coffee I dose off for about half an hour to an hour. Once we get to our destination, thats when this our journey begins.
