Highs and Lows of the LA Basin

Start the day with a hike in the Santa Monica Mountains ... such as Topanga Canyon left,
or Malibu State Park below.

Down to Point Dume to check out the rock climbers and the surf.

Santa Monica Bay next.

Stroll along the Boardwalk at Venice Beach.

Or along a less travelled beach such as Playa del Rey,

for a dip or just to watch the sailboats at sunset.
