This is a journal of my adventures. The title is from a story by the Greek historian Herodotus. In 600 BC the Pharaoh Necho II sent a fleet of ships to discover if Africa was entirely surrounded by water.
It is probably the earliest recorded mention of a simple geographical phenomenon - that in the southern hemisphere the sun lies to the north. To me this phrase signifies the excitement and challenges of the adventures that I actively seek out.
The recent heavy rains brought up a bumper crop of brilliant orange poppies and other wildflowers to grace the local canyons. Come follow along as I take you on an easy hike down an old power line road and up into the green hills of Southern California.
It is time to head back but let me share one last photo of a real beauty who sometimes comes out on my adventures. She really liked the wildflowers too!
Thanks for hiking along and please share my blog with your friends!
