Los Leones Canyon

Hiking on weekends is one of my favorite activities. Getting up early to exercise and enjoy some nature makes me feel like I'm starting the weekend right. All too often I get up on a Saturday or Sunday and spend the rest of the day lazying around in bed.

I found this trail on Yelp and it is definitely my favorite hike in Los Angeles. The trail is an uphill climb for 3.1 miles and as you start to get to the top, you see the most wonderful views of the ocean and the city. The hike was fairly strenuous as it was pretty steep getting closer to the top but it was a great workout. The only downside is that no dogs are allowed as the trail is pretty narrow in the beginning. The trailhead is very easily accessible from Sunset Blvd. and the PCH, there is ample parking.

School is almost over and summer is over here! I can't wait for barbecues, late evening jogs, and that hot lazy air that just makes you want to do nothing.

On a side note, I'm sad that I won't be able to see my friends from back home too much, or at all because I will be in LA the whole summer.

Sunsets at Venice Beach

Now that it's spring, I'm longing for hot summery days when the sun goes down at 8:30 and the entire day is spent outdoors.

Snapshots of Winter

Today is the first official day of winter and the shortest day of the year. Bring on the hot chocolate and heavy coats!
