*Yaawwn* its 5 o’clock just sitting on the outskirts of LA County, this morning marks the first day of spring. Sunrise is within the hour and “June Gloom” is in full effect. I look over to my partner in crime Spartacus, as he rolls over in disbelief of being woken up at this hour. Without hesitation I gather our hiking gear in dramatic fashion and jolt to our nearest mountain.
We gazed upon our morning’s adventure, while inhaling the aroma of the wilderness. I looked down at Spartacus assuring him, “This was the perfect way to ring in the new season.” After a demanding hike we enjoyed the sun peaking through the clouds, with a Cuban coffee and Organic puppy treats. I can’t help but ponder, We Californians are blessed with exceptional sun rays year round, yet there is something different about spring. Could it be the “Spring Cleaning” or the final round of Shedding Winter Weight, either way, I’m looking forward to the change in season.
