I didn't work out of an office this year.
I didn't spend the summer in Joshua Tree.
I didn't wreck my car.
I didn't have much money.
But I had lots of time and more than enough gumption.
I'm never lacking in enthusiasm or curiosity, that's for sure.
So here's a recap of the year passed, in case you missed any adventures. I couldn't do everything, but I crammed a lot into (mostly) day trips on a tight budget.
These weren't necessarily my favorite excursions of 2013, but they were the most popular (or, at least, most-read) ones:
Rancho Los Amigos, Downey
The Garden of Oz
George Air Force Base, Victorville
Linda Vista Community Hospital, Exterior
Linda Vista Community Hospital, Interior
Tejon Ranch Wildflowers
Joshua Tree's Barker Dam
My Time Has Passed
Abandoned Naval Housing, Western Avenue
It should be noted that there are actually a lot of older posts from 2011 and 2012 that people were still reading this year.
Thanks for all your views and comments and messages and emails and replies, both public and private. They mean a lot and I read them all!
