birthday camping trip

With my birthday approaching, I knew how I wanted to celebrate it: getting grubby around a campfire. So the Guy + dog & I headed for the hills inland from Santa Barbara, where we found ourselves a place by a creek in the Los Padres National Forest.

Due to recent rain, the brook was babbling ….

… and the wildflowers were out.

Hours were spent hiking …

The weather was perfect, and a good time was had by all.

After two days, we took the high road home, scoping out possibilities for the next camping trip, which will require a 4WD. As I’ve been saying for, oh, six months now, I really do need to get myself one of them.

    Beautiful photos. I keep telling myself to get a four wheel drive as well because I know from experience that a Kia Soul just does not like hills/rocks/anything not pavement.
