Bristlecone Journal  The least hippie hippie blog, created by two SoCal natives who equally love exploring outdoor activities & staying in to enjoy a comfortable night in.

Hey, everyone! Well, 2017 was going great for the first 3/4 of the year. A new addition to our fleet brought us back into the #VanLife, we visited tons of different @nationalparkservice locations, participated in @cotopaxi’s @cotopaxiquestival (#SanDiego edition!), and were planning more and more trips.
Then Jonathan lost his mom and everything came to an abrupt stop. Just as we started to heal, Cal lost her dad. As hard as the end of 2017 was, we are making sure that we celebrate the lives of those we lost by living the lives we have to the fullest. This has included a hike to the #SantaRosaPlateau on New Year’s Day, exploring smaller open spaces in #OakGlen, and today’s awe-inspiring trek to the Lost Horse Mine in @joshuatreenps.
We will both be refocusing our efforts to bring consistent posts, and hope to get some new materials to you fine followers soon.

"There's a sunrise and a sunset every day, and you can choose to be there for it - you can put yourself in the way of beauty."
—Cheryl Strayed, Wild
All of this time spent in civilization has me craving another trip to Utah. There’s something about the quiet wildness of the desert that just can’t be matched. .

Laying in my hammock reading #edwardabbey's #desertsolitaire while staring up at Watchman Peak from time to time, I saw @dr_emperor snapping photos and realized that all the action was behind me in the form of a grazing mule deer. Finding a piece of nature as perfect as this isn't hard, but it also doesn't happen that often for us city-dwelling folk. @zionnps was an absolutely beautiful park, and I already can't wait to go back. .

"If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it."

One of our favorite things about southern Utah was the diversity in the desert. Not only are there red rocks, brown rocks, grey rocks, and tan rocks, but there are also vast forests amidst the sandstone and limestone; coniferous and deciduous. You look one direction and see desert sage, monkey flower, Indian paintbrush, Spanish bayonets, prickly pear, and cholla; you look another and see ponderosas, and even bristlecones amongst the junipers; turn a corner and you can smell that you're close to water, surrounded by cottonwood, maidenhair fern, watercress, and a fun wild grape variety. The desert is vast and diverse. It is awe inspiring and brings out people's inner child. So get out there and play. No matter what wilderness is available to you, go touch the dirt, smell the fresh air, listen to the bird songs, and learn a little about your own piece of earth. .

It took us a while here at @bristleconejournal, but we finally got ourselves a new #adventuremobile in the form of this beast; known around these parts as #generalgrant or #thegeneral. Our maiden voyage in the new #vanlife whip consisted of a tour of @visitutah. The first night of the trip was spent camping near Kodachrome State Park. This was our first red rock experience of the trip and got us psyched for the next few days camping, hiking, and exploring Southern Utah. .

We're two days away from another trip to see more #nationalparks, #publiclands , and get some fresh #campvibes. #optoutside for #laborday

New post! @yosemitenps is a wondrous place of beauty. Nobody can sing it's praises as well as John Muir — but here, I try. Please visit the link in the description, comment, share, and let us know of any trips you think we might enjoy. Thanks!

Stay tuned, friends! Tonight, I'll finally have a write up of our recent trip to @yosemitenps. .

This #4thofjuly I'm particularly grateful for the @nationalparkservice, @ourpubliclands, and the @u.s.forestservice. These organizations help preserve some of #America's most stunning lands. We've visited @yosemitenps & @grandcanyonnps this year, and have been to @hawaiivolcanoesnps, @haleakalanps, and more. Each park holds so much wonder, and I hope that they remain protected for future generations. Here's to our National Parks and to all those organizations and individuals who serve and protect them.

If you're looking for a righteous view of the @yosemitenps valley but can't get up Half Dome, Sentinel Dome is where it's at. 1.4 miles from the Glacier Point lot, or 1.1 miles from the Sentinel Dome lot (which fills up fast). The trail is pretty easy until you see that dome peaking out, but it's definitely not as bad of an incline as it looks. #findyourpark

During our recent trip to Yosemite, the Tioga Pass had not yet opened. To escape the hustle and bustle of the valley we ventured to one of the less traversed areas of the park: Hetch Hetchy. Damn, it was gorgeous.

For the past few days, our mornings have looked something like this: waking up between 3:30-5am, driving to somewhere rad in the park, hiking to a vantage point, and setting up for photos. Today we're going to sit in our offices for 8 hours. #takemeback

Sneak peak: Can anyone guess where we've been?

The #HeartRock #Trail in #Crestline is great for a quick jaunt into nature. Head to our site to read all about it!

Just dropped a new post trying to explain the inexplicable beauty of the @grandcanyonnps. Check it out at BristleconeJournal.com and let us know what you think! Picture: Cal checking out #HopiPoint before #sunset.

When in Arizona, drink as the Arizonans do! | Besides the stunning glory of the @GrandCanyonNPS, their General Store has individual #beer cans you can buy! Come for the #nature, boost the local #Arizona #craftbeer economy, and go home with plenty of fantastic memories. #optoutside

On the trail I spotted a wild @dr_emperor in all his photo-taking glory. He's the man behind the camera for most of these photos.

For a short, local hike, we drove the 40 minutes it takes to get to the trailhead of #heartrocktrail from our house. The rain we got this past winter made the falls and the pools below full and happy with lots of quick, cold water. Even with the busiest of schedules it's important to #optoutside for a bit. #52hikechallenge

Finishing up our write up, but we definitely wanted to give @easycamp a shoutout for shooting us a Galaxy 400 tent, Sarin Camp Kitchen, tripod campfire grill, and LED lantern before our trip to the @GrandCanyonNPS. Mather Campground is an awesome option for sticking around a couple days at the park without spending a fortune on lodging inside the park nor driving a couple hours a day to the park from and to Williams.

Just 24 hours ago we were watching an AMAZING sunset at #HopiPoint at the @GrandCanyonNPS. We did a long weekend as part of @cassandrayost's #springbreak! The @nationalparkservice is an amazing part of our country and I'm glad to have marked another off the list.

When your garden gets a stupid aphid infestation, but you want to keep it #organic, you gotta call in the big guns: #ladybugs. I got over 4,000 of these ferocious critters ready to chomp their way through the vermin wrecking my #broccoli, #cauliflower, #artichokes, and #kale. Not up in here, jerks. Not up in here. #homestead #gardening #destroydestroydestroy
