Angeles National Forest

At the beginning of 2012 we took a nice walk through the mountains just outside of Los Angeles.

It’s always nice to get out of the city.  We live near the ocean, but I haven’t been up in the mountains for a long time.  It always strikes me how much California geology and flora reminds me of Spain.  It felt a lot like trips we would take to Cercedilla or to the Roman Road just to the north of Madrid.  Or like the trips to the country estate of the family I lived with.  Dry, arid, barren landscape that is still somehow verdant and appealing.  It isn’t like Northern Michigan, with it’s lush greenery and harsh snow.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the photos!
