SCO is taking Catalina again. We’re mobbing to Two Harbors from USC for a backpacking looooop. It starts by hiking 9 miles along the coast (full day of good looks) to Parson’s Landing. Beach camping, star gazing, and a hop in the ocean can be expected (dudes bring your speedos). Saturday we’re cheffing up a nuggy breaky to fuel our 11 mile hike up one of Catalina’s highest peaks on the way back to Two Harbors. The rest of Saturday will be strictly for the boys. Finally, Sunday we’re planning to enjoy leisurely activities including but not limited to kayaking or snorkeling before the afternoon boat fairy brings us back to the mainland.
Temps are looking mild on Catalina, and this is an awesome time of year to be on the island since the heat has died down (and its not as frigid as the Sierras are right now). This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bring warm clothing though. Please do.
