My friends and I like to explore various parts of Los Angeles on the weekends when we’re off from work.
Yesterday we went hiking on the trail to Mount Wilson and were able to get some amazing photos in the process.
Even if they’re not massive behemoths, I still enjoy scaling smaller mountains because it’s an enjoyable experience. I started doing this when I was raised in the upper peninsula of Michigan. We lived close to the Porcupine Mountains which are more characteristic of the foothills of the Appalachians than any larger peaks, but that doesn’t detract from their natural beauty. This is what I stress with people when they complain about the “hills” in california opposed to “proper mountains.” You don’t need huge mountain peaks to get a great view of the city below. It’s what draws me to the Santa Monica Mountains throughout the year when the weather is pleasant. My most recent visit to the area took me to Corbin Canyon Park. I made the mistake of getting so high that I felt glued to the ground walking on the natural trails. The indica strain I purchased at a nearby dispensary in Tarzana made me so tired while hiking that I wanted to stop and lay on the ground to take a nap. The next time I go hiking on one of the various nature trails in the Tarzana area, I’m going to use less cannabis or find an energizing sativa strain instead of a sedating indica strain. I should have known that an indica would give me trouble, but they’re not always extremely sedating varieties of weed. Some indicas feel more like hybrids than anything else.
