A good day for a hike

I'm thankful today for a gorgeous hike with my hubby...I may have complained along the way, but when we got to the top, the amazingly beautiful view of the snowcapped mountains in the distance was worth it all. Of course, I wasn't exactly thrilled when I realized I had to go all the way back...but at least it was mostly downhill. There's nothing like hiking in LA after a good rain...the sky is clear and the birds are chirping and there's actually green covering the hills. And it's always a treat to get to see my beloved Griffith Observatory -- it was especially fun to see it from a new angle.


  1. Sounds fun! I love hiking and I haven't been in forever. I can't find anyone to go with me. I used to go by myself until I had a possible homicidal maniac try to get me into his car.

  2. AH. Yes...stay away from the trails with the homicidal maniacs. I saw a hawk snatch a mouse up right in front of me, but that's a different kind of homicide I suppose. It really was beautiful up there. Wish I lived closer so we could hike together! I can never find anyone to go with me either and I don't like to go by myself in case I fall in a hole I want someone to call for help! :)

  3. Such a beautiful way to spend a morning. Even if our calves are still paying for it...
