i wasn't prepared to go on a hike today. there were a million things to do at home. but when i got the invitation - and i realized it was the last day of march - i decided it would do us all a bit of good.
i took so many pictures. the sky was a perfect blue, and the interior canyons of the mountains were so much greener than i expected. alas, on our descent i finally noticed the message on my screen "NO CARD". damn. luckily i'd captured a few with my phone. we will be back to take more another day...

Tips: Moderate incline (1000 ft elevation gain) on well-maintained fire road, so good shoes a must. No shady spots. Park in the cleared area to the side off Stunt Road and cross over through the white gate to the fire road (Calabasas Peak Motorway).
