Hermit Falls

So, me and Daniel really like to go on hikes on the weekend, it's always good to get outside! We especially like finding new hiking trails that we love.  Last weekend we went to Hermit Falls in the Los Angeles National Forest.  We discovered this gem last year.  Here are some pictures of the last couple of times we visited.

In the summer, hikers dive off the cliffs and into the water here, it's so scary to watch and I would probably never do it because I'm a total wuss.

The best part of this hike is that most of the way it is a shaded forest, so you don't get scorched by the sun.

The way down to the falls is all downhill,  which means the way back is ALL uphill...it gets rough towards the end, but it's a good workout.

It is really beautiful there, so far my favorite!

Our Garden Patio

So, we've been working on our back patio for the last month or so, planting flowers, succulents and herbs.  I'm so excited to be able to relax in an outdoor space of our own, looking forward to some warm summer nights.

 I really wish we took a before picture of the weeds that were taking over this space, it was like a jungle.  Thankfully, Daniel got rid of them...he's working hard in his straw hat here.

We are really enjoying our gas fire pit, warm flame and no smoke.

It's going to be a good summer <3
