Walking in Moonlight

This past Tuesday after work, the "hiking club" went for a hike at Debs Park in Montecito Heights. On this one, we had Nancy, Hiroshi, Veronica, Jun, Mark, and Felix. It was about a 2.5 mile loop trail up to the top of the hill and back down -- enough for an aerobic workout, but not too much...

A full moon was our guiding light in the sky, and we heard the occasional rustle of leaves from a surprised coyote or rabbit (that also surprised us). Our hike had a very "Christmasy" feeling with wonderful trail views of the nighttime downtown skyline and the surrounding city below. It was fun to point out streets and landmarks from their lights.

The "hiking club" is an association of co-workers at Little Tokyo Service Center and friends. We usually meet every Tuesday evening. The club has gone on hikes in Griffith Park, a section of the Mount Wilson Trail, and even to the famous Hollywood sign. We're looking for suggestions for interesting hikes (and night hikes) in the Los Angeles area, so please let us know (or post a comment below) if you can recommend anything. Thanks!
