After leaving San Francisco, I headed down to southern CA to visit California Girl and her family. Even though the weather was less than desirable, it was what I still considered wonderful! Besides for eating like a queen in southern Cali, we hit up the hiking trails between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach to burn off a few calories and catch a great view of the Pacific Ocean.
We knocked out about 3.5 miles with an amazing view of an overcast Pacific Ocean. I can't even imagine how HOT it gets in the canyon in the summer, because it was cool and I was sweatin' up a storm. Sea level yes, but this place had some real mountain hills!
