Images from Faryal and Alison's 2005 and 2006 Visits to Southern California:

July 18, 2005: Temescal State Park (Pacific Palisades), Malibu

July 20, 2005: Palm Springs, Mt. San Jacinto, San Pedro

August 24, 2006: Joshua Tree National Park

August 26, 2006: Getty Museum (Los Angeles), Malibu, visit w/Dominick

View from Temescal State Park: Here’s a dusk-time, south-facing view of the “South Bay” (aka Santa Monica bay) from about 1,000 feet up in Temescal State Park (part of Topanga State Park). This image is actually one frame (of about 120) in a time-lapse sequence I captured in November 2005. Temescal Park is in the Santa Monica Mountains, which hug the coast of California from roughly the Hollywood hills (in Los Angeles County) to Point Mugu in Ventura County — a length of nearly 40 miles (64 km). In the view below, one can see most of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, about 30 miles away. This was an especially clear day (which are, themselves, more common in late fall and winter) — rare for this area. The commonly-seen hazy skies in this area are not just due to smog, but also a “marine layer”.
