I've probably never appreciated LA as much as I did this morning while running up the Temescal Ridge Trail, racing to beat the sunrise with Lukas, Jimmy and John.
A full moon slowly setting in the west and a red-streaked sky waiting for the sun to rise in the east. Views stretching 360 degrees - the ocean in front of Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica and Palos Verdes, a quiet downtown LA, the San Gabriel Mountains, Topanga State Park, Malibu and back to the ocean.
I wish I had some photos to post, but I'm not sure they would do it justice. You should go see it for yourself. And the beauty of LA is that you can, just about any morning you choose.
