Southern California

11/02/17 - 11/27/17

I spent three and a half weeks with my friend Mike and his family. Thanks to the whole family for making me feel right at home and part of the family.

During this time we did a lot of different things. We did a couple of day trips to Santa Barbara, did a few hikes, went to a Renaissance Fair, went to a Rocket Day event, and went to Cavalia (kind of Cirque du Soleil with horses). Mike and I even had a day a reliving our youth with a visit to a batting cage and some go-kart racing.

I've split the photos from this visit into three galleries. In this gallery, I've included the photos from some of the hikes we took. We did a hike in Malibu Creek State Park to the site where MASH was filmed. We also did several hikes in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. These hikes include a hike in the Rancho Sierra Vista area where I saw my first rattlesnake in the wild and a hike at Parmount Ranch that has a western townsite where many TV shows and movies have been filmed. This townsite was the location where Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman was filmed. The current show Westworld is also filmed there.
