Localizing - Runyon Canyon

My awesome former-track-teammate-roommate-forever-friend Allison visited over the past weekend. For her first time on the West Coast, we made sure to check off a few must-do & sees like stepping into the Pacific Ocean, driving through Rodeo Drive, eating In & Out and, well, lots of eating.

The eating will definitely get covered via Food Love Friday posts and a Localizing shoutout to the amazing Jonathan Gold and LA Weekly for putting on one heck of a pancake breakfast. I think I'm still dreaming about Fig's blueberry butter and Nickel Diner's irish carbomb and mable bacon donut holes.

But I digress. Back to the subject of this entry.

In between the grubbing, we bravely took on Runyon Canyon for a Saturday morning hike. Despite the heatwave, we made it up Route A to where it intersected Route B for a great 360 view of the city. No celebrity sightings but more than enough off-leash dogs to entertain us along the trek. At the end, we came across an outdoor yoga session - if only we weren't too tired to join in :)
