When in Southern California giving multimedia presentations I usually like to get outside during the daytime. One tradition has been to hike Mt. Baldy. Anybody can come who is in shape for a casual hike to the top of this 10,064′ peak and who can take a day off from work to join us. The groups are always fun and usually have a mix of a few new people along with the usual suspects. I always meet at 6am so there’s plenty of time to get up and down the mountain by early afternoon so I can drive off in the direction of my next slideshow, which in this case was at the Tarzana location of Adventure 16. A great time was had by all. Here are a few pictures. The rest are here: http://kurtwedbergphotography.com/Southern-California/Mt-Baldy/Mt-Baldy-November-20-2009/10398560_z85TW/1/720261895_QfcDG

Kurt has been in Southern California this week giving multimedia presentations about our always popular trips to Africa where we combine a climb of Kilimanjaro with a game viewing safari. The presentations have been taking place at Adventure 16 stores and are sponsored by Icebreaker. Monday was at the Oceanside location, Tuesday at Solana Beach, and last night was in San Diego. The shows will wrap up with the West LA location tonight and Tarzana on Friday night. Shows begin at 7pm. Turnout has been great with 115 people attending last nights show!
