    That fog shot was climbing over Kanan Dume.
    I live on Point Dume which is at the bottom of Kanan.

    Well, you did pick some nice locations for your little road trips in this area.

    I`m already against the next war.

    •  Another favorite is Topanga Canyon Blvd (0+ / 0-)

      and Topanga itself is such a great little hamlet. Yerba Buena is great, too. All of the range crossings between the coast and the valley are gorgeous.  

      I have a keen sense of direction and I love to drive. When I travel I spend most of my free time driving in new locations.

      My first adult trip to LA was to interview for a position at Harvard-Westlake and my family stayed back in Texas, so I was free to explore. I was staying at a friend's place in Studio City and since she was on location in Greenland (filming Last Airbender) I had use of her ragtop Jeep, the perfect vehicle for my purposes.

      Coldwater Canyon had me hooked, and it's not even that great, comparatively speaking. Then I discovered Laurel Canyon. That was even better. In fact, they were taking the annual picture at the General Store that week and I got to be in it by sheer luck. I had no idea what the history was at the time.

      After my interviews were over I stayed in the city for the next week to explore. Started with any route I could find up and over the Santa Monica's.

      When I took 101 out to Augora and sought a route to Malibu Kanan Dume blew my mind. Something about it just really struck me. Beautiful, beautiful area.

      Your pictures are a tonic for me. I can feel the sea and sun and smell the chaparral.
