Hiking in the Santa Monica Mountain
I haven't done any hiking here. This may be my first trail. Sounds wonderful.

what happens when you run a movie about acid trips through the acid trip generator?  Someone Ran "Fear and Loathing" Through Google's Neural Network http://gizmodo.com/oh-god-someone-ran-fear-and-loathing-through-googles-n-1716036990
By now, the entire internet’s realized that Deep Dream, Google’s artificial neural network, is capable of some pretty trippy images. But what happens when you run a movie about acid trips through the acid trip generator? Fear and Loathing in your worst nightmares, that’s what.

Sit With Me Among the White Clouds
Clambering up the Cold Mountain path,
The Cold Mountain trail goes on and on:
The long gorge choked with scree and boulders,
The wide creek, the mist blurred grass.
The moss is slippery, though there's been no rain
The pine sings, but there's no wind.
Who can leap the word's ties
And sit with me among the white clouds?

Heading out into the wild this weekend for 4 days of backpacking near the Kearsarge Pass area of the Sierra Nevadas. Keep things from spinning apart...

Hey +Ryan Milliken...here is a list. Any list of peaks is somewhat arbitrary, but it's a start. We have three basic clusters of tall guys marshalled by Baldy, Gorgonio, and San Jacinto.

Letter to My Son
+Ta-Nehisi Coates writes a letter to his son about being black in America. 
“Here is what I would like for you to know: In America, it is traditional to destroy the black body—it is heritage.”

Kearsarge Pass
Some of the pics I took on my hike last weekend from Onion Valley Campground up into the Sierra Nevadas. If you have the means and the time, anywhere in the John Muir Wilderness is beautiful.

Introduction
I asked my daily chat group to make a list of things to help me here and this is what they came up with. I think it's pretty good:

· Most Likely to Fall Down a Mountainside....trying to save his GPS - <nodding>

· Reluctant urbanite...because it's where the WiFis are – ugh, rite!

· Jeep Whore – cause what a Jeep really is…is freedom.

· Nerdasaurus – that’s where all the action is
