Lauren and I have been hiking every New Year’s for the past one year so we decided to keep up the long standing tradition and head out to Paradise Falls in Thousand Oaks. Unlike what the name suggests, the falls really smells! But the whole 6-or-so mile Box Canyon Loop had a lot of varied terrain which Lauren liked, and after huffing and puffing it to Lizard Peak we were able to gain composure enough to try to make the hike seem effortless in front of the camera.
Also according to our hiking customs we didn’t wear hiking clothes or shoes just in case we wanted to try to be extra photogenic. On our 3rd date we actually went up LA’s Runyon Canyon all dressed up since we were originally planning on going to see a movie, which we were running late for after dinner. Actually, now that I think of it, I didn’t tell her that I had pre-purchased tickets to that movie. Oh well.
