One of my favorite hiking trails near our house in Hollywood starts in a park called Fern Dell, and winds through a grove of redwood trees and up a fire road to the Griffith Observatory.
Although I was a little sad to be doing it without Mr. W on Saturday, the weather made up for it pretty quickly.
January is one of my favorite months in Southern California because so often we have 70°+ temperatures and crystal blue skies. (Yes, that blue strip in the picture below is the ocean.)
And to think in 6 or 7 months I'll be living somewhere even more beautiful than this. Even though I'm missing my man, there are lots of things making me feel like a lucky girl these days.
