Today Justyna, Marta, Anna, and I went to a farm in Ventura county where we picked strawberries, grapefruits, tangerines and oranges. The fruit was amazing and being able to just pick the juiciest orange I have ever had off a tree and walk around in a beautiful orchard in the mountains was absolutely incredible. We then continued on to the Old Creek Ranch Winery in the town of Ventura where Justyna and I enjoyed sampling some of the wine from this very limited production vineyard. Marta  only got to indulge in some crackers but Anna got to play with the resident cat, Ripple. We all finished off the day along with Colin by having a barbeque back in Pasadena on one the  terraces in their building. Tomorrow we had planned on heading off on our road trip around the Southwest but Justyna and I have been having such a good time here that we have decided to spend another day around Pasadena. We do however plan on getting up early to make an attempt on the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains, 10,068′ Mt Baldy before returning to the apartment for dinner. Condition reports have been promising so we are excited to finally get up in the mountains.
