Why and How I Started Backyard Composting
Thanks to COVID and quarantine my days and weeks and months have somewhat started to blend, so I can't, off the top of my head, tell you when I started composting, it was sometime between March and May, but I can tell you how and why. The idea of composting in my backyard started small and slow, and then out of nowhere blew itself up into existence.
Gould Mesa Road: Angeles Crest Hwy to Paul Little Picnic Site
According to my AllTrails recording this hike was 6 miles round trip and took us a total of 2 hours and 45 minutes, including our short break at the end waterfall. It was a weekday morning that we went and we did encounter a few hikers throughout the trail, but I wouldn't call it busy and for the most part people were polite and did have their masks on them.
I Finally Made it to Joshua Tree
Joshua Tree was one of my dad's favorite places, right along with the High Sierra and the Grand Teton. I grew up hearing him talk about this strange land in the desert, but despite it being only about two hours away from where I grew up I never had the pleasure of experiencing it with him.
