#14 - hiking

august will be the last month of the sky is big in pasadena.  

i have accepted a position at salford mennonite church in harleysville, pennsylvania.  we will be moving in september, so august will be my farewell month to the city of pasadena.  when we moved here from virginia i posted a list of the ten things i would miss most about harrisonburg.  i figured that would be a good way to end our time here, so each day i will be doing one final rundown of life in this great city.  i have prepared two lists - ten things i won't be sad to leave behind, and twenty of my absolute favorite things about pasadena.  i am going to start with ten positives and ten negatives, alternating back and forth each day.  concluding with my top ten things about life in pasadena.
we didn't take advantage of this often enough during our time here.  there is incredible hiking within a very short distance of pasadena - much of it found in the san gabriel mountains.

You did the biking thing, close enough.

The hiking is one of the top 3 things that brought us here.

The hiking has been the cause of the neglect my house and garden suffers. But the dog benefits. I hope there are woods and trails where you're going, Ben. At least you won't have to worry about rattlesnakes.

Hiking is great but lately I been reading you gotta be on the lookout for those mtn hikers using the trails.
