Happy Saturday

Sunday–Garden Fresh

We usually have a back-to-back workout schedule over the weekend –long distance hiking and running. So it is pretty tiring at the end of the day. And recover is the key for us to get back to the weekly track. We usually do carbs loading over the weekends and find it is really help accelerate the recovery. One of our favorite things to do after the hiking and running is to just chill out in our backyard by the fireside and enjoy some garden fresh–some we got from the farmer’s market and some we picked up from our backyard. We feel those rich autumn colors really put us in a festive mood.

Weekend Hiking

It has been another intense week. I just realize how important to disengage a little bit and have a little refreshing time over the weekend. So I can prepare myself well for a new week. This weekend we decided to hike Zuma Canyon Trail, Malibu. The trail is rated difficult but we took a rather easy approach this time. So we can spent more time to enjoy the views and interesting things along the hike.

Weekend Hike

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.

A Weekend Hike

Since pandemic crisis, we have being more focused on local hiking. We will have to say that it is actually pretty cool experience to explore some of these local tails and wonder how come we didn’t do this type of local hike before. It is much easier and relaxing and allow us to have a hard-core workout on very next day. We explored Santa Fe Dam last weekend. Read on to see where we headed to this Saturday.

So, this Saturday we hiked Carbon Canyon Park in Orange County this Saturday. Carbon Canyon Regional Park is a regional park in Brea, California that was created after the Carbon Canyon Creek was dammed. It links up with Chino Hills State Park on the east side. The reason we hiked this park because of the Redwood Grove. But it turned out there were more fun here.

Yes. It was just amazing to visit this Butterfly Garden in Carbon Canyon Regional Park earlier in the morning. In the photo above, I was standing by a California Sage. They often call this white sage. But we just love the color.

Here comes the famous Redwood Grove in the park. Redwood is native to Northern California thanks to the rain and humid weather over there. We have been to Redwood forest in Northern California. It is pretty amazing but very dangerous too. Here in SoCal, these redwoods don’t grow as tall as those in Northern Cali and they are not as green either. But we can really appreciate this redwood grove right here.

We will say it is quite spiritual by just walking through the nice shade of this redwood grove.

Find some amazing mushrooms here.

Time to go to the wildness.

Our gym just closes again due to the Corona virus spike recently in SoCal. . We usually go to Sauna or Steam room for a heat treatment for the body in our gym. Since it s impossible to do it now. So we think it will be good for us to expose out body in the sun by hiking in the wildness.

It is hot hot, hot here. But we really enjoy hiking in the wildness.

Have a pose with these lovely California sunflowers.

Now we come back the end of the hike.

Hope you enjoy our hiking trip.

Happy Weekend

A Day in Pasadena

The weather was nice on Saturday. Since we usually don’t have a long workout on Saturdays. We often plan to visit some places locally during this pandemic crisis. After all, we have being stayed at home too long. It is good to just scroll around local towns and get some inspiration, So far, we have visited DTLA China Town and Little Tokyo, so we decided to visit Pasadena this Saturday.

A little bit information about Pasadena here. Pasadena is a city in California, northeast of downtown Los Angeles. In the center, Old Pasadena is a shopping and dining district known for its Victorian and art deco buildings. The strikingly modern Norton Simon Museum houses notable European and Asian art, plus a sculpture garden. The Rose Bowl is a sports stadium known for hosting the Rose Bowl Game, an annual college football clash usually held on January 1. Read on to enjoy the local journey with us.

We had a scenic drive around Arroyo Seco area. The Arroyo Seco Bridge is pretty amazing. With its majestic arches rising 150 feet above the deeply cut Arroyo Seco, the Bridge was proclaimed the highest concrete bridge in the world upon completion in 1913.  The bridge impressed travelers from the day it opened.  Until then, the crossing of the Arroyo Seco required horses and wagons to descend the steep eastern slope, cross a small bridge over the stream, and then climb the west bank through Eagle Rock Pass.  Given this harsh topography, the Colorado Street Bridge proved a challenge to design and build.  Solid footing eluded engineers in the seasonally wet arroyo bed. Hopefully, we are able to get a better video when we drive through again. In case, you want to take a “country-in-the-city walk, check out this article from LA Times.

Then we stopped by ArtCenter of College Design to take a photo with its famous Mural wall outside of the campus.
