My friend Clara, of whom you know from her antagonistic participation in many adventures and bouts of debauchery, wrote up her trip report from our summit of Pyramid Peak. It's hilarious, despite picking on me a lot. She almost hurt my feeling.
I met my first real-life blogger! Like, the first one that I didn't know already. I met Lorien from "Wayfaring Stranger" for a hike in the Topanga State Park. Pretty country for Los Angeles. We went uphill, we went downhill, I showed off my route-finding skills by carefully reading the trail signs, and then we battled a python!
