No Pain, No Gain. Hiking the Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park.

I woke up with sore legs today definitely not a good way to start the week. My painful muscles were a result from a 2-hour hike up the Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park in Foothill Ranch. It was a canyon with surprisingly steep hills that clearly, challenged every bit of my leg muscles.  Continue reading “No Pain, No Gain. Hiking the Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park.”

Your Preventative Snake Bite Care. Bookmark This!

Coming across multiple snakes from my recent trips to the desert, shows that I can no longer ignore the fact that being bitten by one can happen. No joke, my worst nightmare whenever I’m on a weekend trip to the desert or mountain, is being bitten by a snake. I think it’s due to the fact that when I’m out and about, I tend to get excited about other things in front of me rather than looking down on my feet. Snakes, on the other hand, are very good at camouflaging and hiding where you least expect to see them. Therefore, to ease my mind, I started looking into figuring out how to prevent from being bitten by a snake while enjoying my time exploring. Continue reading “Your Preventative Snake Bite Care.

Not My Usual Route

Early this morning, I decided at the last minute that I wanted to go for a run at a nearby park for a change other than my usual gym routine. As luck would have it, google suggested Cedar Grove Park which was approximately 5 min. away from my home. I quickly checked on Instagram to get a feel for the place and sure enough, images peeked my interest. So, I made my way to the park…. Continue reading “Not My Usual Route”

Jogging paths with a view in Irvine.

One of the greatest things about living in Irvine is the vast amount of spaces there are available in this city. It’s normal to find empty open fields in Irvine and as an advent jogger, I love having a number of options of places to choose from to jog (especially a nice view to ogle). Here are my top paths to jog in the area:
