One of the things I love about Southern California and Los Angeles is that you can go from beach to mountain within a half an hour, okay, maybe an hour. I also love that the days are a balmy 85 degrees in the middle of winter.
This allows for a lot of outdoor activity. The LOML and I try to hike once a week. We have been able to explore so many beautiful and sometimes hidden gems in Los Angeles, I can hardly believe how lucky we are!
Last Saturday we went on a hike above Sierra Madre, which is about 15 miles north of downtown Los Angeles. Like so many areas of this city, I never knew this little burg even existed. This from a native! I don’t usually schleep a big camera, but this time I thought, ‘what the heck?’ and threw it in my backpack.
I’m so glad I did. Just a few quick shots of this beautiful place I call home! Here is a link to the Sturtevant Falls Trail
