last week a nature-loving coworker suggested that i check out chantry flat, a gorgeous bit of the national forest about 20 minutes away. so yesterday b and i loaded up our backpacks and headed out to the hoegees camp loop hike, two miles of lush creek-filled forest followed by three miles of your standard mountainy socal brush. it was a beautiful hike - we'll definitely be going back.
of course, one and a half miles in i managed to fall into the creek. thank goodness for my wonderful hiking boots! my foot stayed warm even whilst soaked!
