Secret L.A.

While I'm gearing up for Alaska, the adventure club trekked out to Escondido Falls above Malibu.
Would you believe this is L.A.?

On the trail up we encountered strange and menacing wildlife. We dubbed this the rare armadillo tree spider.

 In all seriousness the trail is a great and adventurous hike. Anticipate a bottleneck at the rope crossing and the falls can be rather packed at the top.

This is my trash haul I picked up along the way and at the falls.  Mostly stray water bottles... a selling point for reusable water bottles if ever I saw one.

No trip is to Malibu is complete without a stop to Malibu Seafood on the way home.
