Haven't had much downtime where we've had good service, so apologies for the lack of written updates. We're currently in Monterey, about to pack up our backpacks and go on an overnight adventure into the hills of Big Sur. Our plan is to hike to Sykes hot springs, which is about 20 miles round trip (we'll stay 2 nights so we don't have to do this all in 24 hours). We should be getting back to our car on Monday afternoon-ish. It's my first backpacking trip and it's going to be a doozy, but from what we've read, well worth the effort!
When we get back, I'll write about Ryan's birthday in Santa Cruz and our time in Point Reyes. Lots to catch up on. Until Monday!
