Yesterday, I had this realization that the reason I love Los Angeles is because it’s a big city filled with nature. Ok, highways and shopping malls aside, you have a beach, mountains, a downtown, and suburbs. It’s, by definition, the second biggest city in America, but it’s quiet. It’s green. There’s space.
With that being said, yes, people, it did in fact take me three months to take my first hike in Runyon Canyon, a series of hiking trails found in the Santa Monica Mountains, famous for celebrity sightings. Good luck with that one; everyone looks like (and thinks they’re) a celebrity in Los Angeles.
There aren’t many other places as Instagram-worthy than Runyon Canyon. Or at least that’s what #LosAngeles will you tell you. It’s almost become a joke that more people go to Runyon Canyon to take selfies than to actually hike, but you’ll see why. The views of the Hollywood Sign, all of Los Angeles, or even the reflection of your new healthy LA glow from your iPhone, will be enough to make you return a second time.
After all, if you didn’t selfie, it didn’t happen?
Have you ever been to Runyon Canyon?
Was your selfie game on-point for the occasion?
