Patch Blog: My Day with Patch Hiking Club

The Patch Hiking Club had a great hike. Here is my take, and my slide show, on the morning's events.

(I have a cute slide show of our hike on my blog, click this sentence and take a look!)

Yesterday I abandoned my usual hiking ladies for the inaugural hike of the Patch Hiking Club. Our intrepid leader, , decided on the for the first meeting and it was simply magical. I have not done this area before and I was completely surprised at how lush and interesting the hike was.

We passed a more than 200-year-old oak tree the firefighters managed to save from the devastating . The first part of the hike was dry and "moonscape-esque." Pretty soon, however, things started to green up and we saw a ton of waist and chest high chaparral that has grown over the burned out trees.

The trail started to slope downward and we were suddenly at the bottom of a ravine with a lovely rivulet of water gurgled along, pooling in some areas, cascading over small boulders in others. As a native of dry Southern California, I find the sound and sight of running water irresistible.

Our group was awesome with a wide range of ages and temperaments. Thank you to Tanya and for making this happen. I hear we might tackle , next. Details will be posted here, on Patch, as well as my community page, 365 Things To Do in Glendale. I personally invite you to come along - it is fantastic way to start your weekend!

So glad I had the opportunity to hike with you all. I really enjoyed your company. The weather was crisp and refreshing and we had nicely groomed trails for the most part. Fun to see the boyscouts planting trees. That was a great video Kendyl and thanks to our organizers Tanya and Nicole. I really love the Patch! Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! xo
