Activity: Hiking, horses, and hot springs
Tired of LA’s lackluster wildlife?
Want to spend a beautiful early winter morning exploring the meadows of the eastern Sierras?
Trying to reinvent yourself as a naturalist?
If you answered yes to any of those questions (most importantly the second), you’re in luck. After visiting base camp on Saturday for some food, camping and bonding, we’ll spend our morning leisurely hiking, trying to spot some of the Sierra Nevada’s abundant wildlife: 300 species of birds, rabbits, deer, bobcats, and yes, WILD MUSTANGS. Will we see ALL these majestic animals? Most definitely not. But we will certainly see a few. And if we fail (or succeed, either way) we will visit some hot springs before heading back to the concrete jungle of LA on Sunday afternoon. Extra points to whoever brings a safari hat.
(Highly recommend watching Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron for inspo, available on HBO Go)
