On Friday, I signed up for a nice activity within the new students' orientation week. It consisted of hiking in LA National Forest, but it turned out to be to climb the highest mountain in LA county!
It was a nice climb and took around 2.5-3 hours to get to the summit. The views from their were really nice. From there you can see that LA county is just a huge desert... There were just a few mountains with trees!
This is the view of the climbing path from the top of the mountain:
Can you see how straight are roads here?! Yes, those straight lines are roads in the middle of nowhere...
Even the top was quite like a desert... :)
