Every time I meet a like-minded soul, I cannot resist the opportunity to share with them one of our most beautiful treasures. The hiking trails of the Santa Monica Mountains are filled with picture perfect settings. I used to think some artistic renderings of nature looked fake. Not any more. I have seen so many unbelievably beautiful settings that my new thought is that if you can dream it up, it probably DOES exist naturally, somewhere! Places like this inspire me to remain strong and healthy so that I can enjoy them up close and personal for decades.
