Since our trip through Big Sur at the beginning of March, Paul and I have been trying to work more hikes into our weekend routine. We have never had "weekends" together in the traditional sense (first I worked retail and then Paul's intern schedule often had him at the hospital for weekend shifts) and we're taking advantage of the time. Sometimes coming up with things to do that get us out of the house but keep us from spending money is challenging.
We're living in a pretty cool hiking area right now - just a short drive south gets us to Malibu and a short drive north gets us to Ojai and Santa Barbara. We usually just check yelp! for hiking trails (we check yelp! to find everything) and in April made it to Point Mugu State Park & Circle X Ranch.
