Go Hike It - Site Redesign!

Go Hike It


Happy 2016! I'm excited to share that we have launched the new design of www.gohikeit.com! Over the years, the site has grown from a small blog into an expanded hiking and outdoor lifestyle resource with over 40 unique hikes!

We completely migrated the site from Blogger to Wordpress.org to give the site a unique, custom look and feel. Additionally the site is completely responsive, which will help it look excellent and display correctly on any computer, tablet or smart phone!

In case you don't remember what the old Go Hike It website looked like, below are some screenshots. After seeing the old layout, you'll quickly understand why we are excited about this new redesign. :)

Victorville Airplane Graveyard Visit



Airplane graveyards are interesting cultural landmarks. In some ways, it’s difficult to imagine that new planes costing over $350 million dollars, can eventually be left in the dessert. In other ways, the remote landscape juxtaposed against modern machinery, creates a unique photography opportunity.


This particular graveyard is near the Southern Logistics Airport in Victorville, CA.

My Condolences

Treasure Island @ Night
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and loved ones of Hunter Schwirtz. Although I didn’t personally know him, he has left behind a strong impression and impact on our community. I’m always amazed at how strongly, quickly & cohesively Laguna Beach can rally behind individuals mourning incomprehensible loss. I have felt this same love and support over the last ten years since Max & Mark passed away.
Although we miss our departed daily – no matter what age someone is when they pass away, it’s comforting to know that our community can help, embrace and support those grieving grieving and in need of comfort.
Don’t be afraid to reach out for help or share from your personal experiences to those grieving as our personal experiences can often help provide some guidance and possibly even some comfort. ‪#‎onelove‬
