Ahhh, what a beautiful weekend. Took my long-time friend, Robert (formerly of Mammoth, currently of Flagstaff) up to Matilija today. I would have gone elsewhere given that I've been that way 8 or so times since August but the place is so cool that when Rob agreed to a hike, Matilija was naturally the place to take him given that he'd never seen the canyon. We had as near to perfect a day as possible. Got to share my venison sausage with the Blue Heron Ranch dogs, went swimming, and enjoyed the warm fall weather. No more Matillija for a while. Now that the rains have arrived I'll be hitting some of the other local canyons.
