Ashram Hike

Nip had mentioned the Ashram house. I thought it'd be a great way to spend the day. Both Fey and Nip took to the hiking better than I did. The day was a beauty and the Ashram house was quite a rugged well built place. Here's where it is... http://goo.gl/maps/TnwJU

Here's a marker for an important turn. We were heading about a 1/3 the way to the top of that canyon.

There's Nip with Fey in the background showing the ADV salute celebrating having attained the parking lot and getting off the bike.

We huffed and puffed toward our destination...

That's our skinny little trail...notice all the pine cones. They all had nuts in them, and others had a few nuts laying where they fell. There were so many nuts that the squirrels and birds couldn't eat them all.

Fey adequately described the return trip to Lone Pine thru the Alabama Hills.

Fey, how's the wrist feeling....any plans about getting out on the road?
