Watkins Family Hour at the Largo

Last night was the Watkins Family hour at the Largo... with Tom Brosseau.... It was AMAZING... so much talent and soul wrapped up in one show.

Tom Brosseau is quite the character... we couldn't put our finger on it, but there is something about him that we just love! He is funny, gentle, he has a amazingly unique voice... I just couldn't stop watching him. He is just one of those people you see, and you just want to be friends with...

And of course I just love Sara Watkins.. she is so cute, who wouldn't love her. And her voice, wow.

I wish I could have "tivo-ed" that performance in my head.

A good review of Tom Brosseau's music is on ... search Tom Brosseau, the review is called: "A Sweet Voice gets Louder" ... they describe him in all the words that I can't find.

Ice House Saddle

Hiking... I say I love it... and I do. But its one of those things that, while in the moment, I begin to wonder what made me love it in the first place.
Last Saturday Justin and I, with a couple of friends, hiked the Ice House Canyon Saddle in Mt. Baldy. - It was beautiful, the weather was perfect.... It was uphill, my legs were burning, my butt still hurts. But I love it. I love the creek, the water is so clear. I love the trees, I love being outside; we saw a couple of lamas, and a few deer.
We have made it a goal to keep on this hiking trend.
In May we hiked to the summit of Baldy, a couple of weeks ago we hiked the infamous Bridge to Nowhere... next, we are thinking The Devil's Punchbowl...
Why are so many hiking destinations and trails referred to as "Devil" by the way?
