Based on the responses on Twitter and Facebook, it seems like a lot of people got outside this weekend to enjoy our incredible weather.

I met up with Kolby and Team WWED? at Sandstone Peak, and it was well worth the drive – the skies were clear and water was everywhere. Thankfully, my boots held up to their waterproof claims, and we were treated to a wet winter wonderland in the Santa Monica Mountains.

We had a few clouds roll in toward the end of the hike – making me thankful I’d packed a bunch of layers with me – but the views were still unbelievable.
