Over The Hill Day

Nothing to do with old age. Growing up in Malibu, going over the hill meant traveling from the ocean side of the Santa Monica Mountains to the inland side, usually on Kanan Dume Road or Malibu Canyon Road. I made four stops today.  I began on the inland side with Lake Eleanor Open Space in Westlake Village, and then worked my way over to Malibu with stops at David M. Brown Overlook, Serra Retreat and Malibu Bluffs Park. This trip was very therapeutic.

Hiking Distance: about 8 1/2 miles
