Bridge to NoWhere: Hiking Trail

July 18th, 2011 >> Outdoor Activities, Travel

Matt and I went over too San Gabriel Mountains to hike to the Bridge to NoWhere.  It was 5 miles to the bridge and 5 miles back of sand, rock, and water crossings to hike.  It was really beautiful and the weather was perfect.  It wasn’t too hot and the breeze was just right.  This was a well needed hiking trip for the both of us.  We had a picnic a little bit passed the bridge while listening to the wind, water, and the birds.  We also watched a few people bungee jump off the bridge.  I love taking pictures of different bridges and this one was pretty neat.  I will going hiking here again, this place is fantastic!!!  Here are some pictures below.

bonkSo I finished ready Bonk.  I absolutely loved it.  Very interesting book and well written.  If you want to know some random history about sex, orgasms, and science, then this is the book to read.  A few things I read, I am still completely shocked people do that or even tried it.  You will have to read it if you want to know what I am talking about.  It is a fast and easy read.  I promise you will learn a thing or two.

Now, I am reading  Reckless Endangerment: How Outsized Ambition, Greed, and Corruption Led to Economic Armageddon.  So far it is quite eye opening.  We will see…
