Hiking Inspiration Point above Santa Barbara

During my mother’s visit last week, we hiked the Inspiration Point Trail above Santa Barbara.

It was an enjoyable 3+ miles, though more strenuous than any of us expected based on the trail descriptions we read. Nonetheless, we had a great time!

I tracked our efforts with MapMyFitness: http://www.mapmyfitness.com/workout/1343364587.

Ponderosa Canyon overlook, Bryce Canyon National Park

As Chris and I continue our trip home from Automattic’s annual gathering, we stopped at Bryce Canyon National Park. It had been cloudy and raining most of the day, but a brief break in the weather worked in our favor.
