The fiance and I went hiking on Sunday at the Millard Trail near Altadena. I’ve found that, as much as I love L.A., if I’m in the city too long, I get grumpy and irritable. Which is why I really should be going out into the Angeles forest more often, because it was really, really beautiful. There were trees and streams and families having Happy Family Sunday Afternoons, and it was both mindclearing and heartwarming. I can deal with the city again now that I’ve been someplace green, relatively clean, and not crowded for a few hours.
I was actually surprised how quickly we were able to get out to the trail, too – a half hour’s drive, and we were well outside the crowdedness of a Sunday on the Santa Monica mountains trails. Anyone else got good trail suggestions in the area? I’m ridiculously out of shape these days and plan to start easy.
