The crazy trail up the side of Temescal Canyon (in Temescal Gateway Park) we did back in 2009 with Sophia and a big group? Dan, Justin, and I revisited it for Dan's birthday this year. It's every bit as short and as challenging as I remembered it. With a clear sky, though, it was a beautiful hike. Even saw a house Justin wanted to pillage...
Stopped by The Counter afterwards. They were packed, so we did take-out and went back to play Mario Kart Wii. The crab cake burger was quite good-- and I don't even like crab cake! Unfortunately service was slow, they claimed 10-15 minutes and I think they took almost 25 minutes.
Cleaned up, watched UCLA basketball kick some butt, and then off to Thai Patio with Dan, Jen, and Carley for dinner to wrap up Dan's birthday weekend. Good times, good food, crazy crowd (as usual).
