Growing up in Southern California, the beach has always been a part of our lives. Whether taking a bike ride to the beach, playing beach volleyball, getting in a surf session, we are always drawn there.
But California also has incredible mountains that are not too far. They are so addictive. In the winter, if we here there is snow coming we’re up there.
Snowboarding is a huge part of our lives. We have also been camping and on road adventures since we were little. The mountains here have always called us and we never hesitate to visit.
In the last 10-15 years, we have become avid backpackers. In fact, my sister will be doing the John Muir Trail in August. I can’t wait to hear all about her adventures when she gets back. I might end up doing some drawings of her photos and memories.
In any case, the best thing about living in Southern California is you can backpack and play beach volleyball in one day. You can snowboard and surf another day. You really can’t beat that.
