It was about 7 a.m. as I was driving on the Foothill (210) Freeway towards Los Angeles. With the help of my seat warmers I rolled down all my windows and used the crisp wind as a healthier alternative to my morning coffee.
Then I saw something that will forever haunt my eco-friendly dreams!
The multi-layered horizon of Los Angeles in which one layer is a filthy encircling of muck and desolation. Yes, I’m passionate but it’s only because that’s the air I’m forced to breathe!
Getting out of this entrapment has become a high priority of mine and that is why I would like to create a Patch hiking group.
I am a daily visitor to the Montrose Patch website and have noticed the great number of individuals that respond to hiking posts. Since we live in such a mountainous area, I think we should take full advantage of all that it has to offer, including the better air quality.
I propose early morning and after 6 p.m. hikes in the Sunland, La Crescenta, La Canada Flintridge and Glendale areas. If anyone is interested either comment on this post or email me at Tanya_ohanian@yahoo.com.
Here are a few suggestions for “mini” hikes we can take.
- in La Canada Flintridge
- Beaudry Loop Hike in Glendale
- in La Crescenta
- Brand Park in Glendale
