[hiking] eaton canyon

hubs wanted me to start documenting our hiking trips so here we go!

today we took a local hike up eaton canyon in altadena. we kinda slept in, then the sun came out, so we made it very short.

not my picture, courtesy of modernhiker
time: 1 hour r/t (we didn't finish obviously)

according to hub's fitbit (a pedometer/calorie counter type of thing), we...
...took 7,517 steps
...hiked 3.28 miles
...burned 1,208 calories

i'm suspicious on the calories burned but the other stats seem believable.

eaton canyon is mostly unshaded so it's not recommended for the summer. there is absolutely no scenery whatsoever except rocks, more rocks, dirt, and more dirt. we did this trail a few years ago and got to the waterfall at the end. it's my hope to reach the waterfall again some time this year! i'm also hoping to go another season to see if it's any prettier...

Fabuloso Friday {7/19}

this week has been pretty uninspiring. i'm hoping next week will be better!

+ h and i discovered a food truck event. he finally got to try kogi truck! "it's good but not 2-hour wait good" was his verdict. i agree.

from an argentinian food truck Piaggio

lobsta rolls! this was pretty hefty at $12 but it was really good. worth the price? umm......

+ on a rare occasion, we went out for a weekend breakfast. i'm particular to einstein bagels because i used to go a lot in salt lake.

+ went to the gym and sweated a lot.

+ really liking this CD

+ every thursday i would think it's friday. i guess my fabuloso #5 this week is that... it's friday!!

Fab Five Friday {7/5}

+ today is my younger nephew's 8th birthday. eight!! my goodness, i can still remember the day he was born (i was in hawaii watching fireworks with friends when i received the call that my sister had gone to the hospital), the month-old party we had at my house for him, his visit to utah when he had just barely begun to walk... and now, at the blink of the eye, he's 8! geez, time sure flies.

+ july fourth bbq with family

+ i have a guest post up! well, sort of.

+ got to meet up with my high school friend/college roomate and meet her 3-month-old baby. she is such a cutie!
