2009 - Jul 3-5 » Catalina through hike

I spent my birthday and the weekend of the 4th on Catalina Island with Anna and a few friends, backpacking from Two Harbors to Avalon, snorkeling, kayaking, watching fireworks, and visiting the island's highpoint along the way. To date this is one of my favorite non-peakbagging trips ever.

The fox that stole our snickers. I heard him throw up later.
