Hiking the Lizard Head


Happy Fridays to you all!

If the rains don't come,  I am hoping to get out on a hike with a Certain Very Nice Man this weekend.  

Recently we joined some friends on a hike to Lizard Rock in the nearby Santa Monica mountains.


Here I am with my friend Kitty, about halfway to the rock.



Why look!  There I am with a Certain Very Nice Man atop the rock!

(He loves to hike AND he walks at the same incredibly fast speed I do!  Bonus!)

Do you think the rock looks like a Lizard's Head?

From this angle it looks more like a manatee.




We made it back to the parking lot as the sun was setting.

Time for dinner out!

Another great day with good friends!

Hope your Fridays are good ones!

Not a hiker, but still enjoyed your pictures because you were having fun. Enjoy your week-end, I have a four day one thanks to fall break. But no hiking for me, instead I'll be decorating a bathroom that I never use in my house: the one the sons use :op

I couldn't even do the hike, but being on the edge of that rock... I DON'T THINK SO! You're a brave girl.

Hiking is in my retirement plans if I can get my husband to join in. Maybe the rock looked like a lizard before erosion got it.

I love to hike and we go whenever we can. I haven't heard of those trails before. I'm assuming they are in your neck of the woods. Gotta go look them up...
