Margarita Adventures zipline canopy tours

Wine country adventure like no other

We usually think of zip lining as an adventurous activity that we might do when vacationing in Costa Rica, Ecuador, or even Northern California – not something that we can do in the middle of Wine Country. That all changed in September 2011 when owner Karl Whittstrom’s inspiration to create Margarita Adventures Zipline Canopy Tours on the Santa Margarita Ranch property became a reality.

Take a tumble on the mat: Paragon Ju Jitsu teaches confidence, self-defense

In the real world, fights almost always end up on the floor, two opponents rolling around trying to get the top position and hold the other down. Ground fighting is awkward and messy, and it doesn’t make for impressively choreographed scenes in ninja flicks, which is part of the reason few kids are interested in learning it and fewer gyms teach the techniques necessary to win a grappling match.
 
The students and teachers at Paragon Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, with locations in San Luis Obispo and Templeton, are the exception.

Calmino mission trail is a hiker’s dream

It’s California’s take on the 500-mile trek in Spain

Due to the popularity of the recent movie “The Way,” more Americans have become aware of the Camino de Santiago, the 500-mile trek through northern Spain.  What many Californians don’t realize, however, is that we have a Camino of our own right here in the Golden State.

Taking the Plunge: The Avila Dolphins

 

Taking the Plunge: The Avila Dolphins

By Jamie Relth

From the end of the pier in Avila Beach, the ocean seems like a warm, welcoming place. The smooth glassy water surface reflects a buttery, golden morning sun and the white craggy rock islands hugging the coastline to the south seem like a breadcrumb trail leading to adventure.

That’s how it seems.

Run Paso for a Cause

Run Paso is a women’s running group that was founded in 2010. The group of friends began meeting at a different location each Sunday, and the word quickly spread spread. In the past two years, the group has grown and the women in it have started training together for 5k, half, and full marathons.
 
Together, the group trains for and travels to races throughout the state. “It is so fun to have something to train for,” says member Michelle Thacher, “We make a weekend of the races, get hotel rooms, and go out to dinner.”
