Been using Apple's News app much more since iOS 10 upgrade. Looks stunning. Wish I could import RSS feeds outside of its walled garden. For that I use Feedly and Flipboard but I'd gladly use News app exclusively if they'd let me subscribe to what I want.
I visited Mount Palomar during the weekend. Beautiful. Still Southern Californian but because it is elevated it has a decidedly different vibe. I absolutely have to go back, maybe for camping next time.
