Verdugo Hills Summit Hike

Wes, Maddie, and Dad hiked almost 8 miles round trip to the top of the Verdugo Hills on Saturday.
The kids were real troopers, and Strudel gets the award for taking more steps than the rest of us combined.

The Lane kids hiked the lower part of this trail with us several months back.
That's DeBell golf course below.

Hiking out of Stough Canyon

Some Boy Scout Troop had hauled some Adirondack Chairs about 3 miles up to a vista overlooking the San Fernando Valley.
It was relaxing to sit on them and take in the view, but, boy, was it hard getting out of them.

Near the summit, the scrubby vegetation gave way to some impressive pines.

Looks like a lot of fun. You will have to take Rusty and I on a cool hike when we come next. So find the best one.
