The Day Time and the Night Time

The Day Time:
(Jonny, Rita, and Klaus: new, yet temporary, member of the family)

While my brother was visiting this weekend, I got to go back to one of my favorite hikes: Chantry Flats. It's a beautiful drive up Santa Anita Canyon through the foothills (Santa Anita exit off the 210, go north about 15 minutes and follow the road til it ends. Parking pass is $5, available at the top or at REI). This is also where you would park if you wanted to do the 14 mile hike to Mt. Wilson. However, with all the rain we've had lately, a lot of the trails were covered with water (not too much, but expect to get your feet wet if you're going sometime soon). Made for some beautiful water pictures, though:

The Night Time:
Sam's band, The Idyllists, had two amazing shows this weekend: At the Hotel Cafe for their successful release show, they had about 200 people there. And then they got to play the Echoplex for the Hear Gallery. It sounded amazing!
Here are a few pics:

My amazing man Sam!

And at the Echoplex:

And in other music news, I saw the Henry Clay People and We Are Dios at the Troubadour last night. Both great bands. The Henry Clay People put on a great live show. We Are Dios were an impressive band. The show was a bit slow at times, but they definitely made an impression. Couldn't bring my camera in, but a great time was had by all.

I didn't even know that Jonny came to visit you! Was it for Sam's show? What's the story with Klaus?
