ready to go hiking

This podcast is about how I prepare for a day hike.  This includes what research I do to find the exotic locations for my hikes and what type of gear I take with me on my adventures.

While getting ready for the last hike to the Devil’s Chair, I laid out all of my gear I was going to take and took some photographs.  I numbered the items later and talk about them on this podcast.

If you ever wonder what to take, or don’t think you’re taking the right things; check out what I bring on a typical day hike.

This podcast is about a winter day hike to visit the Devil’s Punchbowl and the scenic sights from the Devil’s Chair, a peninsula of rock overlooking the Devil’s Punchbowl, a mass of twisted rocks near the San Andreas Fault Zone.  In this edition I led a group of 8 energetic hikers from the visitor’s center over the Burkhart Trail to the Devil’s Punchbowl Trail.  We crossed over a couple of sparkling icy creeks and met a friendly hiker who took time to chat with us on the trail.

Also in this episode I talk about the history of the Devil’s Punchbowl County Park, the San Andreas Fault and throw in a little bit of music, movie clips and informational audio about the region.

I also posted a short video of the hike on You Tube
