Whenever my family and I travel we always plan a day or two of hiking. Even if we’re in a big city. One of my favorite memories was our trip to California with my 20 year old son, Ryan. He’s getting older and those one on one times are becoming far and few between. I was so happy to have the opportunity to spend a whole day with him. We planned on visiting the Griffith Observatory and hiking the trails of Griffith Park. It was a great day. We ventured on the dusty path meandered our way upwards on a 4 mile hike. Along the way we admired the unique vegetation, and landscape around us. At the top we were greeted with the amazing reward of an unforgettable view of Los Angeles. We connected that day and now we have a cherished memory we won’t forget.
