Fantastic scenery! Would love to do some hiking in SoCal, only done a few hikes up in Yosemite but where you are looks stunning
Considering The San Gabriel’s, Santa Monica’s and the Los Padres NF are all so close to Los Angeles, it really is insane how wilderness-y it can feel. I believe the Santa Monica’s are the only mountain range within city limits anywhere in the world that has a big cat population, for example.
Edit: no, Mumbai does too.
The Sierra’s and Yosemite are a whole ‘nother ball game though. I actually have a permit to hike Whitney in July which is exciting. Logistically going to the Sierra’s can be challenging now due to permits - which is good - but it takes a lot of planning.
Ha yeah it’s nuts it’s just out of town for you!
Maybe I listen to too much true crime but I just imagine you’d be tripping over murder victims in the LA hills :/
