When most people think of Los Angeles Country, they picture beaches,traffic...
and movie stars.
Not me! I think of mountains.
My parents live at the base of the San Gabriel mountains, less than a block from the entrance to Eaton Canyon.
I usually hike up to the falls when I'm home, but today I decided to climb the Mount Wilson Toll Road instead.
This trail is a long, steep fire road that eventually leads to the top of Mt. Wilson.
The grade is a pretty consistent ten percent, so it didn't take long to see some awesome views of both the city...and the mountains.
That's my parents' street down there. Try as I might, I couldn't pick out their house. Too many trees!
A more prominent landmark is the site of the former Eaton Canyon Riding Club.
Sigh. So many of my best childhood memories happened on that piece of land!
I walked until the FitBit register one hundred floors.
Then I walked a little more, rested a bit and headed home.
I've also spent a lot of my day preparing for tomorrow's Models in the Mountains event.
I've gone through the California herd, deciding who to sell...
and who to keep!
It's been a great trip so far, and I think the best is yet to come. I am really looking forward to tomorrow and Models in the Mountains!
