The last 3 weekends have been spent hiking some new trails around the area. I recently discovered (and not by choice) that when given the situation, my body is able to conquer a 12 mile adventure. There's an experience I don't plan to relive. But really, all these outdoor adventures have been really nice. It's amazing how a city you've lived in for many years still has so much to offer when truly explored. (Here's a mini clip I shot.)
Besides the typical F21 and H&M, I've been finding myself more in the REI store, always on the lookout for some "stuff." Just last week I went a little crazy on their infamous Garage Sale. I came up on some practically brand new hiking boots and an Osprey Aura 50 backpack. I couldn't believe it. I got lucky with some pretty awesome deals!The backpack is definitely going to come in handy for my trip around the world I intend on doing one of these days. In the meantime, I'll just stick to the AZ mountains...you know, break the backpack in a little.
I just couldn't resist getting this Arc'teryx Atom jacket, too. It's so soft and comfortable. This was definitely one of those good investment pieces that was much needed for the closet.
