Mohave National Preserve and Los Padres National Forest with los padre

We recently had the pleasure of spending some quality time with Santa Claus, he needed a vacation after the holidays. I kid, but it really was great to do some backpacking and hiking with my dad (see white beard). We always love when friends and family get to join us on an adventure.

The highlight of our trip was backpacking in Los Padres. We did about 20 miles on and out and back trail to Willett Hot Springs.  I would highly recommend this relatively easy trail with spectacular panoramic vistas, as if the hot springs aren’t enough to convince most people.

I swear the sunset looked way more epic in real life

Thankful that Sebastian’s mom got us this awesome water filter for Christmas, we love our LifeStraw!

Couldn’t ask for better weather

 

At the end of our hike we were rewarded with hot springs all to our self!

      We had them all to ourselves so they were fantastic! There are some another 5 miles down the trail that we heard are great. We should plan a trip there in the future. You would love it!
