this past weekend i had the pleasure of car camping at saddlebag lake, just outside the park in inyo nat'l forest. we hiked up to coness lakes where the water is crystal blue and turquoise. the best part involved bouldering up the ridge! did you know i love bouldering? normally my mind goes 1000 miles a minute but when i'm bouldering i have only 2 thoughts: "where is my hand? where is my foot?" car camping is awesome because it combines the best of both worlds, the convenience of having all your shit in the car and the outdoorsy fun of a fire and proximity to excellent hikes.
