While in Los Angeles, each morning we start the day with a invigorating hike. Each canyon has its own spirit and unique foliage and wildlife. We love Mandeville Canyon for its steep hills, desert like shrubs and jaw-draw dropping views of downtown LA and the Pacific. Fryman is like a tropical paradise with lush plants and beautiful song birds. We even made friends with a precocious partridge! Runyon Canyon is smack dab in the middle of Hollywood; it’s an urban hike for sure. Being outside is pure heaven for us. It’s a dose of green to last us until spring hits the east coast.
And, an orange tree (not a movie set, we promise!) that we marveled at on the walk back to the car at Fryman.
