We went to Pt. Reyes National Seashore with Sierra's fam over the holiday. It was amazingly rainy and beautiful. Eli was a huge trooper the whole way, despite the look on his face in this picture. It was a beautiful trip.

I don't know why I didn't publish this post 2 years ago when I saved it as a draft, but here it is.

Baptist Draw into Chute Canyon, and up out the back door. Temp at night while sleeping was easily below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Tested my old sleeping bag's temperature rating (0 degrees). Lucky I had a biv sac, or I would have froze. In the daytime not so bad, but still pretty cold. All of the puddles but one were frozen solid. Total hiking time about 4 hours...was it worth the drive? I thought so...

Thanks to Brendan for a good shot of me rappin' into Chute. Shots of me don't happen as much anymore, so this was a pleasant surprise.
