Summiting Mt. Allen

Santa Monica Mountains
February 24, 2018

< < previous | next > >

On a crisp and warm winter Sunday, Emmy & I and Billy -- I mean, "Scout!" -- drove out Pacific Coast Highway, past Malibu, up to the Santa Monica Mountains for a nice little 6-mile loop and the chance to summit the tallest peak in those mountains. At 3,111 feet, it's not a very high summit, but the view is pretty amazing: 360 degrees that take in everything from Santa Barbara to the Orange County Coast and the San Fernando Valley.
