tngo016 An old man, my hiking companion, once told me: "Never get so busy making a living that you forgot to live." #sanfrancisco #bayarea #outdoors #outdoorlife #outdooradventures #travel #traveling #travellight #packlight #mountainview #mountainlife 4w

tngo016 Outback is an odd and unfathomable place. There is something about all that emptiness that exerts a strange hold on people. Been out here gives me a sense of completeness. Things seem to be clearer and reachable.

tngo016 2015 had so many ups and downs. But I'm glad it is that way because without those ups and downs, I would have not be where I am today. I have met some amazing people and reunited with my awesome friends. Here to another awesome year. Looking forward to many adventures. May your 2016 be awesome as well!!

tngo016 Someone asked me why I hike in the mountain and desert...Simply because it's there.

tngo016 "Most of the time I am sunk into thought, but at some point on each walk there comes a moment when I look up and notice, with a kind of first-time astonishment...the casual ease with which eventual things come together to form a composition that is...perfect. Not just very fine or splendid, but perfect, unimprovable" -#billbryson #awalkinthewoods #palmsprings #takeahike #canyoning #crosscountry #deserttoclouds #outdoorlife #mountaineering #outdooradventures #ModernHiker #MerrillOutside 2mon

  •   teerkevin How was this hike? And the drive there? 2mon
  •   tngo016 @teerkevin To get to this section is about 5 miles from where I parked. Considering where you would come from is also a factor since there're so many ways to get to here. The total trip was about 20 miles (from where I started and ended). Driving here took about 2 hours-Ish. 2mon
  •   teerkevin Interesting. Was the drive up to the trailhead a difficult drive or pretty safe? Also how long did it take you? I'm interested in these tunnels and the trestle! 2mon
  •   tngo016 @teerkevin the driving was alright up until the road section that leads into the based of the mountain. That section was painful to drive on for low car ( a lot of big rocks ) but if you have a truck or jeep or Range Rover then it would be better. This section is about 4 miles so heads-up on that. I didn't really take the main trail to get here. Pretty much off-trailing the whole time. 2mon
  •   teerkevin Okay! I do not have a big car so that's going to suck. But this looks pretty sweet - going to try this out one day soon. 2mon
  •   tngo016 @teerkevin be careful though. I took my GTI out and my heart sunk when driving on this damn road. Yeah it is. It was my first time so pretty neat. If you go, bring jackets and other stuff to stay warm. It can get pretty cold up in the mountain around this time. 2mon
