OK, so that’s a Pulp Fiction reference. Sue me.
Anyway, first off, apologies for the dearth of postings recently. It was a pretty nutty week, with West Coast travel, the trade deadline, etc. etc. etc. I’ll talk ball again soon, but for now I wanted to give a little non-ball insight.
The San Diego-Los Angeles trip is usually one of my favorites of the year, because the weather is always gorgeous, both ballparks are nice… and so on. The one thing that was missing this year was the customary day off in between San Diego and L.A., but life goes on.
I still managed to squeeze in my favorite SoCal activity. After Thursday’s day game in San Diego, I drove out to Palm Desert and spent the night there, then went hiking in Joshua Tree National Park before heading in to L.A. It wasn’t too brutally hot, and the scenery was typically spectacular — though the main park road was closed due to, I believe, flooding.
Anyway, here are some photos of the day, assuming I can master the photo-posting element of this interface. I had a close encounter with a jackrabbit, a less-close encounter with a coyote, and saw quite a few lizards and birds. If this stuff bores you to tears, apologies. I promise a baseball post before the end of this homestand.
