This Saturday we hiked on Paseo Miramar Trail. Althiough it is said the trail is moderate difficult. Considering the high temperature, it is not really that easy. Parker Mesa Overlook offers panoramic views of Santa Monica Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The coastline spans from Palos Verdes to Malibu, with nothing but blue in between.Continue reading
This weekend we hiked Arroyo Seco. It was so much a fun since we got a lot of chances to cross the little streams. And the terrains are quite diversified.
Here I was standing in front the skyline of JPL. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is a federally funded research and development center and NASA field center in the city of La Cañada Flintridge with a Pasadena mailing address, within the state of California, United States
We really love the stone bridge–quite interesting to see one here in the wildness!Continue reading
The weekend hiking is always such a get-away for us particularly after we had hiked and camped so long in our backyard during this pandemic crisis. Well, it is also good to see people start to appreciate more nature and really focus on their well being. We have never seen the trails are packed with so many crowds before by the beaches, in the mountains and deep in the forests and parks. We human beings always feel good when we are close to nature. And we often find stunning colors and scenery that make us super excited when we explore nature.
Finally, our beaches are re-opening. “It’s as if we were in Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, all asleep, all frozen, and suddenly there’s light and space.” It seems like we haven’t seen ocean for ages. With the beautiful warm weather, nothing can really beat spending a day by the beach for some fresh air and Vitamin D. And we got enough of them after 4-hour non-stop hiking by the beach.
We are practicing social distancing over the weekends: no gallery visits, no going to bars & restaurants as we usually do at this special moment of coronavirus outbreak not only for us but for other people who are senior and have weaker immune system as well. This morning Dr. Anthony Fauci warned that much more needs to be done to slow the spread of the novel corona virus and help the economy cope, urging Americans to significantly curb their social activity and practice social distancing. Even though you are young and healthy, you may carry the virus without any symptom and pass them to other people who are senior and weaker.
So we spend more time hiking and it is fascinating.
It is excited to see the blossoms and colors since Spring is here. As they said, “In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.”
Also they said, “Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.”
Stay Safe and Happy
