I’ve always been one to prefer the city over the open range. But everyone once in awhile, its nice to get out of the polluted epic center of America and breath in some fresh air. Granted I live by the ocean and I get plenty of the sea water smell, but its refreshing to take a short 1.5 – 2 hour drive north-east toward the San Gabriel Mountains just for a change of scenery. Recently, I was turned to this place by someone dear to me and I must say, it definitely has made it onto the list of hidden gems. Horse Flats offers a little bit for everyone. From the most experienced to the very beginners – like myself. With easy hikes, accessible camp sites and rocks to boulder on, you’ve got nothing to loose. Did I mention there’s also a far share of wildlife?
I work in El Segundo, on the 10th floor of an 11 story building with an amazing view of LAX, the runway and the ocean. On occasion during lunch I drive 5 minutes west toward the ocean to have my lunch. I lay out a blanket and watch the planes fly overhead thinking to myself “I wonder where that plane is going” or “what adventure awaits them.” Personally, some of my greatest moments of growth occurred under these circumstances, thousands of miles away from home, in a foreign land, surrounded by strangers speaking a language I could barely understand. Like the spring trip to Europe in ’08 or Vietnam in 2012. Those were very beautiful and breath taking times. I only can speculate what the my next adventure will take me. Till then, I can just watch and day dream.
