Details

Monkey Business, definition (Rex's dictionary): hiking plus assorted tomfoolery involving cool boulders and caves, providing a workout for both legs and arms, while our hike leader plays guitar and "sings" classic rock songs

IT'S A BANNER YEAR FOR WILDFLOWERS--OR AT LEAST THE BEST I'VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME

THE PLAN: we will start from the freeway overpass, go south over a small hill winding up at the Old Pony Express Trail where it crosses Lilac Lane. Then we will continue south on Lilac Lane to climb a rocky hillside (gaining about 400 feet) to South Mt Rexmore which has incredible views of the San Fernando Valley. We will then inhale our lunches. From there it is mostly downhill through a trail covered in wildflowers

HIKE LENGTH: about 3 miles, maybe, I don't really know, it is a total mystery to me
