Sandstone Peak

I was in LA for business all week, in a high-rise office with a great view of the distant mountains.  I stayed an extra day and headed out through the Simi Valley to the Santa Monica mountains to hike Sandstone Peak.  A thoroughly enjoyable 6.5-mile loop, open to views most of the way!  The views to the south passed over the foothills and into the Pacific Ocean, so I drove the winding road down from the trailhead, came around a bend, and ended right at the beachfront!  Drove back along the coast through Malibu. A great day for a hike and drive through pretty countryside!  Check out the photos.
