Laguna Canyon


On Saturday we went on our first California hike in Laguna Canyon.  Not even 10 minutes into our hike we wandered into this small patch of trees that was full of hummingbirds.


They were so tiny and surprisingly tame, they hardly paid any attention to us.



As it turns out, we hiked about 8 and a half miles on that path.  We had only intended to go for a few hours but I guess we got caught up in the hike (or maybe we were lost but we enjoyed it all the same).



The view from the top of the mountain was incredible.  On one side you could see the pacific ocean and to the other side you could see saddle back mountain in the distance.


It's fascinating to see all of the different varieties of plants that grow here compared to Ohio.




The hike was long and tiring but it was beyond beautiful and the view was worth it.


Parts of it were steep and my legs were sore the day after but it was nothing compared to the time my family hiked Mt. Washington.


I have lots more to share with you all, this week has been so full of fun I've hardly had time to look through all the pictures I've taken!  I hope you've enjoyed the photos so far, goodness knows I've had fun taking them.  I hope everyone has a nice weekend!
