Bruce and his friend Adam recently started hiking the Los Robles Trail- a nearby wilderness area in Thousand Oaks. He had been bragging about this fabulous area, and how beautiful and wonderful, and how much I'd love it, yada yada yada. So he gently persuaded me a couple of weeks ago, and we went up for a hike. It was actually prettier than I imagined. February in California is generally gorgeous- with all of our rain (and subsequent mudslides, flash floods, etc) and the Los Robles Trail was indeed lush and green. Of course, my 35 minutes a day of stationary bike riding didn't prepare me for the 2 hour hike. By the time I got 1/4 of the way up the hill, my face was beet red, and I was huffing and puffing like the slightly overweight middle aged lady that I am. But I persevered. Bruce breezed through the hike like a professional hiker. But I got the good photos! (When winded, stop and take pictures!)
I hope you enjoy the results of our afternoon in the wilderness!
