Sturtevant Falls, Arcadia , CA
I also had the chance to check out another SoCal Gem in the Angeles National Forest this weekend—Sturtevant Falls. We arrived at the perfect time to capture this gorgeous natural light leak (complete with rainbow) coming down over the falls.

I’m always oddly intrigued by the leftover bits of industry and machinery one stumbles upon while hiking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #switzerfalls #switzerfallstrail #angelesnationalforest #sangabrielmountains #hikela #lahikers #lahiking #hikingtrailsofinstagram #abandonedmachinery #overgrown #debris #laphotography #laphotographers #nationalforests #amateurphotography #amateurphotographers #nikon #hikingphotography #arroyoseco #beginnerphotography #weekendescapes #socalhikes #endlessviews #picaday #latergram 📸: #NikondD3500
Can I just mention how excited I get picking out hikes every weekend? Checking out the summit of the tallest peak ⛰ in the Santa Monica Mountains on Saturday morning and Sunday is reserved for a 5 mile shoreline stroll at Leo Carillo 🌊 . . . . . . . . #getoutside #womenwhohike #hikela #ventura #adventuretime #weekendgoals #hikes7 &8of100 #explorecalifornia #californiagirlforlife #beachgirl #santamonicamountains #paradise #luckygirl #freshair #naturegirl #inmyelement #trailhunter #traillover
Can’t we linger a little longer? When I stumble upon little gems like this spot I love to stop and really soak it all in. 💙 Sure, we’re on a summit push but it’s important to me to pause for a moment and connect to this time and place. #thisgirlhikes . . . #mtwilson #hikela #hike #peakbagging #socalhiker #girlswhohike #optoutside #backpackerinc #goatworthy #wwhmember #getoutstayout #findyourwild #hikingculture #outdoorwomen #choosemountains #womenwhohike #peoplewhohike #stayandwander #hikingadventures #forceofnature #findyouradventure #neverstopexploring #beautifuldestinations #womenwhoexplore #mtnchicks #wondermore

People and places overlooking the city. A famous angle of the bustling observatory taken as a time lapse video. Combining 600 photos to make a fast paced video. LA is the second largest city in the US and the Griffith observatory attracts millions every year. Taken from the observatory trail.

Has anyone else been feeling the need for a little more balance lately? I don’t know exactly what I’m looking for... sometimes I feel it in nature, sometimes I feel it swimming in the ocean... but one thing I know is I never feel it sitting in an office. Time to recalibrate where my journey is headed. Sometimes these feelings lead no where, sometimes they lead to big changes. We shall see. Anyone else feeling the same sort of ennui? #balance #mountainsarecalling #naturevibes #angelesnationalforest #forest #socal #exploresocal #findingpurpose #explorenature #adventurers #travelgirl #travelgram #changeisgood #weekendgetaway #getawayfromitall #vibrantliving #woods #californiaforest #hikela #hikesocal #socalhikers #naturegirl #hikerchick #hikergirls

I added some photos from our mt. wilson hike to my blog tonight. things I’ll never regret include: doing the damn thing with my lady friend @jubop , taking that one camera class earlier this year, and miraculously not touching the extremely poisonous “purple poodle” plant ... 🌿⛰ . . . #mtwilson #hike #hiking #hikela #california #ca #exploreca #westcoast #getoutside #outsideisfree #sangabrielmountains #lasixpackofpeakschallenge #mywilsontrail #girlswhohike #olympusdigital
After a month of stress and confusion, things are starting to come together in the best way possible.✨ Tough times don’t last but tough people do. (🤷‍♀️) Looking forward to a new month, new projects, and new growth.💕 #FindYourFit
June gloom can be pretty and has its advantages - like shielding us from the heat today on this normally sunny hike! ⛅️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #wanderfullife #livetravelexplore #hikemoreworryless #griffithpark #socalhiker #hikerbabesorg100 42/100

I hiked solo and met these people along the way. They beat me to the top but cheered for me when I got to the top. I thought it was pretty cool.

Birthday hike up to Mt. Lowe ⛰ Highly recommend with beautiful changing scenery and wild flowers.

No, I am not as tall as this waterfall, but thanks to @mr.activelylearn and them angles I am! Went on a great hike through Monrovia Canyon yesterday 🌞 #sundayfunday
He insisted that I am obsessed with him🤷🏻‍♀️ #iam . Do people still do that #mcm thing? Also, no worries, he did not pick the flower 🌺 .
Really needed the time in the forest this weekend. 🔮🌲🍄 Crazy what a good hike can do for your mind. Who’s ready to come out and swim on the holiday weekend coming up?! #angelescrest #nationalforest #hike #hikela #losangeles #labackyard #activemeditation #trail #trailblazers #nature #outdoors #tribal #freeyourmind #psychedelic #mountains #forest #explore #swim #swimminghole #waterfall #crystals #pendant #sun #solar #reflection #opalite #daydream
I had the most incredible adventure yesterday! I love to take long day trips around SoCal to do more than one thing. I have been hearing about so many incredible waterfalls up in the LA area this year, some of which haven’t been flowing in years, apparently, so yearning to go check them out for myself before the disappear for the season. This is lower Escondido Falls in Malibu. It’s a hidden oasis dream tucked away in a canyon only a few minutes from the beach. I felt like I had found a tiny slice of Bali when I saw it. Gorgeous! The photos really don’t do it justice. I couldn’t stop staring at it the whole time we were down there. The hike to the lower falls is very moderate, but I cannot advise anyone to attempt to reach the upper falls. I will not be posting photos of it because I didn’t make it there. The trail is extremely steep and mostly soft soil and loose gravel with nothing to hold on to in places and the propensity for injury going up or down is very high. Stay safe everyone! #waterfall #waterfalls #escondidofalls #malibu #hikemalibu #hikela #hikesocal #travelgirl #travelgram #mountainsarecalling #waterfalldream #magicalnature #naturevibes #naturegirl #socalgirl #vibrantliving #waterfalllover #explorerbabes #hikerbabes #switchbackchics #travellover #hiddengem #explorelocal #socalgem #naturalbeauty #daytrip #roadtrip

To 4am alarms and open highways, to fire roads and missed signs, to cherry pits, apple cores and poisoned squirrels, to a perfect rendition of a whole new world, to re-enacting helicopter rescue missions, to standing on the summit of Baldy at 10,068’ and contemplating greater heights
Don’t buy me flowers. Take me on a hike🍍 . #lahikes .
FIN WEEKEND! Let me just say, I am EXHAUSTED, I am SWEATY, I am DIRTY, I am SORE and I punted all of the chores that a responsible adult would have gotten done today, but I have to say that I am mentally rejuvenated. A couple of months ago, I posted about putting myself in mental boxes because of the fear that not everything would be ideal and it was preventing me from getting it of my house and doing things. I was putting limits on myself and I finally just decided to say “screw it” and do the things that sounded too ambitious or ridiculous and I did a road trip all around southern Arizona in a weekend. Later, I did one of the poppy reserves and a waterfall hike in Angeles National Forest in the same day. Crazy? Maybe. Impossible? Absolutely Not. So when I felt myself creeping back into that limiting mindset again, I had to do something to break free. Today, we went on another crazy road trip all the way to LA again and I had the best time. Go explore something, I’m always glad I did. #mountainsarecalling #travelgirl #travelgram #naturegirl #adventurevibes #wanderlust #hikesocal #vibrantliving #angelesnationalforest #exploresocal #naturevibes #hikerbabes #hikegirls #switchbackchics #hiking #california #daytrip #roadtrip #weekending #sundayfunday #nationalforest #explorelocal #localgems #scenic #scenery #mountainscenery #hikela #peacesign #today

Today’s trail was challenging. But nothing we couldn’t beast! Wished it were a little more clear out so that you could see the beautiful ocean behind us. • • • • #hiking #HikersLA #hikersofinstagram #hikecalifornia #hikeLA
We had an incredible time on our inaugural #WildLA Field Trip with @blackgirlstrekkin ! Families and friends showed up in the early morning to join us on a hike to Eaton Canyon Falls. Along the way, we helped each other and got to know one another. As a group we were full of laughter and encouragement as we made our way to the busy falls and we learned a little bit about this gem in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. A special gracias to Michelle, Tiffany, Rene and Nicole and to everyone of our participants and families who showed up and lent a hand! We can't wait until our next WildLA Field Trip and we're looking forward to collaborating with our friends from BGT again. Keep an eye out for upcoming LO LA events, including our 2nd Annual Pride Month Mixer next Saturday, June 29th! Nos vemos on the trail. 🙌🏽 . . . . . #latinooutdoors #blackgirlstrekkin #losangeles #eatoncanyon #community #leadership #family #hiking #trails #hikeLA #diversifyoutdoors #representationmatters #parksforall #accessforall

Parents are always concerned for their kids by asking, do you think my kid can make it? They should really think about that question... Are they asking for their kid or ask they asking for themselves?

Morning hike buddies. 👫 ⛰ ☀️ #hikeLA
Finally back out exploring! Today’s adventure took me all the way to beautiful Malibu to chase Escondido Falls. It felt amazing to get back out on the trails. This one was pretty quick and easy with a big pay off #mountainsarecalling #travelgirl #travelgram #hiking #localgem #hiddengem #hikemalibu #hikesocal #hikela #sundayfunday #malibumountains #hikerbabes #hikergirl #switchbackchicks #explorerbabes #wanderess #adventuregirl #wanderlust #adventurebabes #socalgirl #explore #vibrantliving #naturegirl #naturevibes #wanderlust
All ladies hike to Bee Rock ✔️ Smallest group I’ve had so far but these ladies kicked ass! There were 2 more that aren’t pictured but they did an awesome job as well. Hikes aren’t easy, but the views and the feeling of accomplishing something you worked for makes it all worth it 💖 I plan to continue these hikes but they aren’t always going to be easy. I go hiking on a weekly basis. If any of you ladies out there are up for the challenge, join me and let’s work on stamina together💪🏽 Thank you babes for coming out and killing some hills on a Sunday morning with me! #hikecalifornia #hikela #outsideisfree #ladiesempowerment #cannabiscommunity #losganjales
