    O-nut takes a hike, no really! Charmlee County Park

    Yesterday (Saturday) my friend and I decided to go for a hike/nature walk and decided on Charmlee County Wilderness Park. It's above Malibu, just off Encinal Cyn. Rd. about 4 miles from P.C.H. It has many trails to walk on and has beautiful views of the Pacific.



    Thereís a nature center, which caters to school groups (it was closed for the day when I was there) and a nice picnic area nearby with what appears to be an ďamphitheatreĒ for group activities.



    The following are some photos of the wildflowers that are blooming all over the park this time of year. They were really spectacular.











    Poppies!


    This is the vine of a wild cucumber. I thought it was so cool how the tendrils just grab onto anything and everything in itís way.


    And hereís a wild cucumber on the vine. Very pod people looking.


    More to come...

    A number of photos showing the trails we walked along.









    At the top of one of the bluffs is an abandoned reservoir. Peace.


    And nearby are the old ruins of the well pump that my friend Sandra is checking out.


    A couple views of the ocean.




    And finally, giant O-nut sitting in the ocean about to ravage the tiny town of Malibu


    Iíve been to Charmlee a couple of times, over 10 years ago, and it seemed to have remained the same, which in my eyes, is a good thing. If youíre looking for a new place to go for some hikes that arenít too too strenuous, check out Charmlee. Oh and fyi, on crystal clear days (as you can see from my ocean views, it was a bit hazy) you can see all the way to Long Beach, and the Channel Islands. Bring a camera!

    I wholeheartedly agree. He almost looks downright friendly although his cucumber scares me a bit.

    Wow, that is so beautiful. Looks like a fun time. Giant O-nut is my favorite, of course, but the rest are extremely cool, too. Pretty flowers!
