today i got up early and clayton, maria and i met meghan, josh and watson at runyon canyon. it was fantastic! we hiked up a pretty steep hill (a good training area to get into shape for snowshoeing in january) and got a really great view of los angeles. between panting for air. and gulping water. there were a lot of cute dogs (and i’m think this dog’s owner who we stopped to talk to was aya sumika from ‘numbers’. if it wasn’t her this woman looked a lot like her). on our way out of the park we helped a family look for their dog (it was found all the way back at the top of the crest). post-hiking we went to panera for lunch. an all-around great morning and i can’t wait to go back there!
