No Heavy Thoughts, Just Photos. Fuh Trut!

Iโ€™ve started several blog posts thinking I would share many photos and few words, then somehow I ended up with many photos and many more words than planned. Hmmm. With that said, join me for two hikes and enjoy some nature therapy by proxy ๐Ÿ˜‰. Have no fear, I’m challenging myself to make this a post that’s heavy on photos and light on words ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ˜Š.

My friend Cherryne wanted to hike in Malibu Creek State Park to visit the location where M.A.S.H. was filmed. I’m always up for a good hike, as is Jennetta. The three of us are also part of an outdoor group and are used to hiking and camping together. We love parks, but this one is extra special to Cherryne because it’s where she did her very first hike about 4 years ago ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Malibu Creek State Park was devastated by the 2018 Woolsey fire which burned almost 97,000 acres and raged for about 13 days before it was contained. It was great to see the recovery that has taken place in less than 2 years.

In Search of M.A.S.H.

Always good to know the trail.

It took a few tries to get a good group shot with the trailhead sign ๐Ÿ˜

I found this video that shows the M.A.S.H. site before and soon after the 2018 Woolsey fire https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKxyjnXN9BM. Fortunately there’s been a lot of regrowth since the fire.

We hiked Malibu Creek State Park on Thursday. By Saturday it was time for another hike. It knew it would be too hot in Santa Clarita so we went to the coast to Point Mugu State Park. ‘Mugu’ is said to be from the Chumash word ‘muwu’ which means ‘beach’. This park has over 60 miles of hiking trails, some of which feature gorgeous beach views.
