Weekend Hike at Eaton Canyon

February 19, 2013


Remember how last week I told you Jake and I were wanting to be better about exploring California? Well I'm proud to say we did a pretty good job of doing just that this weekend. 

On Saturday we packed up a lunch and went to Eaton Canyon in Pasadena. We had never been before and it was the perfect day for a hike. 


The trail was really beautiful. A little stream ran along the path. Pixel loved splashing through it. I think he was a little shocked at how much colder it was from his bath water though. 

At the end of the trail there was a 40 foot waterfall. It was really beautiful. We sat there for a while and let Pixel play in the water. 


We couldn't pass up a picture of Pixel by a firetruck! He was such a good worker carrying his water and out snacks in his little backpack.


On the drive home Pixel was so tired that he fell asleep; it was so cute. I think we wore him out.

  3. This looks like so much fun! Pixel looks so proud of himself, carrying his backpack. Isn't it great to find such a nice place that's close by?

  5. I'm always on the lookout for a good hike, so I'll have to check it out! I especially love hikes with a nice reward at the end, like the waterfall.

    Another fun LA excursion is Silver Lake Reservoir. I only stumbled upon this gem a couple weeks ago, but it's a nice walking trail around the "lake" part of Silver Lake. There's also a dog park! I couldn't find a website for it, but here's the Yelp site if you're interested: http://www.yelp.com/biz/silver-lake-reservoir-los-angeles
