I first walked in Griffith Park decades ago as a teen on a visit with my aunt; I was struck by the fact that in the second biggest city of the U.S. it was possible to get away from urbanity next to a gurgling stream in Fern Dell. There under a canopy of California sycamores were multiple varieties of ferns along a winding trail.
Carolisa Pomerantz and I have hiked the park together numerous times, but decided this day to try a different trail, far above the city, finding views instead of cool, shaded comfort.
Unfortunately, my high-end Lowa hiking boots were not up for the walk. Inexplicably their polyurethane midsoles separated the day before we took off for the hike. An online search revealed many comparable instances, so donít buy Lowa. As you can see from the photo (at the bottom of the page), there were in excellent shape; they just fell apart.
Carolisa and I had a different kind of adventure. Since I was restricted to tennis shoes, we kept to fire roads, no challenging trails that day. Still we got our hearts pumping and our lungs breathing as we got above the city we live in, spending our time trying to identify familiar landmarks from unfamiliar angles.
