Today we drove two hours to meet up with the family, and then another hour, to celebrate brother Raul’s birthday with a hike to the highest point in the Santa Monica mountains.
It was Dakoda’s first hike, and although she slept the entire car ride home, she had the best day. That dog has endless energy.
We ate lunch at the very top and wrote notes to leave in a mailbox on the peak. Sunburned and thirsty we ended our long (long) hike with ice cream, and red bull.
