As previously me mentioned, Jess and I took a camping trip with some of her family this past weekend. We went to Big Basin which is near Santa Cruz in the Redwoods. I had never been to the Redwoods, at least as far as I can remember, and it was amazing seeing these skyscraper-like trees. It was truly remarkable. I actually didn't take many pictures, but found the picture below to be absolutely beautiful.

We mostly just hung out at the camp site. Most of the family did a short hike on Saturday, but with Jessica's knee, we didn't risk it and stayed back and read our Kindles, played card games, etc. The overall trip was good - good food, good laughs, and good company. The only setback - a TON of mosquitoes. They literally had a feast on me. And it seemed like they were nonstop, day and night. And my issue is, mosquitoes have always liked me. If there is even one around, and tons of people, it will choose ME to bite. And not only do they choose me and I get bitten a lot, but my bites swell more than the normal person. It sucked. I survived, but it sucked. I even used all kinds of mosquito prevention stuff. What are you going to do? Hopefully, when I camp in a few weeks, I don't have this issue as I can't take another weekend like that!
