Cozy monk’s cabin nestled in the mountains above Big Sur- we stopped at the #tassajara mountain monastery on our #bigsurtobadwater backpacking trip, and oh how they fed us and made us happy, thank you #zencenter
#bigsurtobadwater trip participant number 3, my pal Jeff from @coldsplinters! If you don’t know the coldsplinters blog/insty, you should, it oozes wilderness and love of the outdoors and is one of my fave web things. Did I mention the guy is jolly as could be as a hiking pal? Go check out his blog and become a fan like I am :D
@coyotethunder trail paintings by the fire on our #bigsurtobadwater backpack. He’s the wilderness heart of juniper ridge, my hiking buddy and his stunning trail paintings will be on sale at @Marisahaskell first Friday in June, don’t miss it- see you there!
#wanderersandwildernessfreaks “When I discovered a new plant, I sat down beside it for a minute or a day, to make its acquaintance and hear what it had to tell” - John Muir // the purple Brodeia in this pic is an endemic species, it only grows in the mountains near big sur, and it was everywhere on our #bigsurtobadwater backpack
