Move over super bloom. After about 12 consecutive weeks of hiking the trail leading to Henninger Flats above Altadena, CA, I have a nice collection of photos to share. The unusually wet rainy season has given us some spectacular wildflowers even on a sun-drenched trail as the days have been getting warmer. I have very much enjoyed nature’s display. The photos really don’t do justice, but I hope you enjoy them.
Some things to consider:
On a more somber note, there is an inherent danger in hiking, even along familiar trails. I was shocked to read this morning about a stabbing that occurred on the trail just last night. It is always a good idea to be prepared and be aware of your surroundings at all times. Also, let a trusted friend or relative know where you’re going and when you’ll return. The Los Angeles County Sheriffs Office has a hiking plan that can be filled out and given to said trusted friend in the unlikely event something happens.
Always remember to be prepared and be alert. But also remember to enjoy the experience. Being out in nature is a great way to relax and gain perspective. Happy trails!
