I took a hike in early January and was feeling pretty lousy, both physically and mentally. I took a few weeks off to heal up, clean up my diet and get my life a little better organized. I returned with this 7 1/2 mile hike in Malibu. I Didn’t know exactly what to call this one. I started at the parking area on Kanan Dume Road and turned around 1 1/2 miles after crossing Latigo Canyon Road. There wasn’t much to see with the heavy overcast and tall brush, but I was grateful for the mild weather.
