Under The La Loma Bridge

In and around Los Angeles it's easy to find a place to park and take a hike.  You don't have to go very far on the hike before you feel like you're far away from the closest convenience market or shopping mall.  We went for a short hike today in the Arroyo Seco south of Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena.  You know the place.  It's near the casting pond where gentle folk practice, well, casting a hook-less line into water.  And then we came to a reminder that we were in a large city.  We stood under the La Loma Bridge built back in the days when streets were narrow and traffic not so heavy.  So here it is viewed from below:  The La Loma Bridge.






Next time you want to take a hike, we suggest the Arroyo Seco.  It meanders for miles.  And you never know what you might find just around that bend in the trail.
Happy hiking.

It is fun to find little treasures around you. What a delightful find.

I walk in the Arroyo every week. It's my favorite place...and so close to home, too!
