Just a quick note to say that while the rest of were late getting to Runyon Canyon for our New Year's hike, NPR's News & Notes host Farai Chideya did show up and at 9 a.m. You go girl! And word has it that she's committed to coming back for our regular hike on Sunday, January 6th at 8:30 a.m.
Looking forward to it.
I must say that starting off the New Year at Runyon Canyon was a good choice. We had 13 people in all come out for the hike today and on Sunday the 30th and we had a great time. Kudos to Gina, Cyndi, Frances, Janice, and Ellene for hiking the whole park for the first time!
In the photo above the girl with the shades on I'm leaning on is my youngest sister Jorjanna who was in town visiting with her boyfriend Sebastian. She joined Big Sis on the hike.
