The Los Angeles Field Guide

The LA Field Guide is a weekly outdoor blog about what keeps me going in this city. A logbook, if you will. Stories and thoughts, musings and places off the beaten path that make Los Angeles a little more wild. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you find something you can add to your own logbook in whatever concrete sprawl you call home. Find all the posts that don't land here at

Camping, biking, rock climbing, gardening, spirituality, humor… I write somewhere between those lines. Weekly outdoor blog—The LA Field Guide.
