There is no reason that a weekend at home should be anything less than a weekend in the Sierras, or Big Sur. The inevitable ebb and flow of life requires that for every heart pounding, dancing moment that I spend overlooking incredible vistas requires that I also spend time grounding myself in who I am and where I'm from. I am a born wanderer and I am a born homebody. On weekends like these I find myself centered and encouraged, ready to set off for another adventure.
Staying home is inevitable on some weekends, and it is absolutely essential that those weekends not be wasted. Back in January we spent a few hours one such weekend hiking through the lush Redwood Forest in Niscene Marks.
