This weekend I went on a last minute camping trip up to the Malibu (affectionately nicknamed The Bu) with my pals Clay and Amy. It was amazing. I've spent a little time with C and A since I've been in L.A., but I wish it had been more! They are by far one of my favorite couples. You know, one of those couples that are individuals, but sweetly affectionate to each other in intentional, not let's-touch-each-other-all-of-the-time-even-when-we-hang-out-with-our-single-friends. Couples take notes from these fine folks.
So went drove up to La Jolla Canyon and camped the night before and then got up the next morning, Amy made some yummy breakfast burritos, and then we set off for our hike up Point Mugu.
Who knew California could get so cold? Brrrr.
Such a gorgeous view from Point Mugu.
At the top!
We left a little "Suckas, we made it!" kind of note.
Mmm, meadows to run through.
I keep endorsing all of my activities, but, seriously, if you make it to L.A. drive north and camp and do this trail. It's strenuous enough in some places to make you feel like you got a workout, but easy enough in other places to make it enjoyable.
