Great stories!

Anthony Jones is a great storyteller! I can’t believe how many adjectives he uses to describe things. He must’ve read a lot of books when he was younger because his stories are like a great novel. I feel that I am with him on the hike as he tells his stories. If you live in California you can definitely relate to the geography of his hikes. I listen to the podcasts over and over and over again. The way he incorporates music with the podcast is very talented. Keep up the great work Anthony!
