    This is the rock we hiked to this evening.

    It is called The Potato Chip for obvious reasons.
    That picture is a couple of years old back when I still had a braid.

    I need a shower and some sleep.

    Greetings, please excuse my ignorance, is that thin piece of rock really just sticking out on its own or am I missing something? Also, how high were you when that photo was taken? Great journal too, I personally appreciated many of the things you said in your introduction.

    Tremendous worms of a swarthy nature pursue me across the sandy blank sky. I stop to think. What the devil AM I up to?!

    Consider yourself lucky. Heehee. Just kidding. Sort of. I guess.
    A guy who likes MyLittlePony. And not just to get girls.
    Yep, that's a bronie. There are a *lot* of bronies, and conventions for them. I find it to be a nice kids show and all, but I don't have the fascination with it that so many do... especially adult men like my husband... And, no, bronies don't like the ponies in a dirty way. Those sorts of fans are called "Cloppers," from what I gather...

    There's a reason we have five acres... just in case...

    Welcome and thank you. The summit of Mt Woodson is 2881 feet.

    has some more great pics that give you some perspective. It is seen as a right of passage for anyone who hikes in this area to get a Potato Chip pic taken.

    His fascination is rather cute,IMO. If you have five acres, you could have a baby AND a pony.

    Potato Chip Rock looks cool. I took a similar picture on a hike a couple weeks ago:

    Ooooh, pretty view. Not just the legs, the scenery too.

    Where was that?

    The Flattop Mountain hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. That was a pretty good hike--you gain about 3500 feet of elevation in a little over 4 miles, tops out around 12,500 feet. Really good views of Long's Peak, the tallest mountain in the state, right across a valley. Very scenic and good wildlife, especially above treeline.

    Still some good sized snow fields on top, also.

    Nice. You have a lot more elevation available to you where you live. SoCal is rather flat.

    Haha, having 40-something mountains over 14,000 feet tall in the state gives you...ample chances for elevation change.
