Here are some action shots from our second hike the Los Padres National Park. As far as hiking goes, I'm afraid we didn't go far and brave the elements much. We walked enough, though, to get a sense of the trail. The vast blue sky is perhaps the most prominent aspect in my mind. The varied vegetation also is an experience. We saw a tree with an amazing, smooth, skin-like bark. Also, there are pine trees in the park that grow gigantic pine cones! Literally the size of a child's head! Unfortunately, we couldn't find any intact ones, though it would have been awkward to take back on the plane anyway.
