Los Angeles, the city of angels, the third largest metropolitan economy in the world, home to movie studios and perfect year round weather. Sometimes amid the hustle and bustle of city life it’s easy to forget that adventure is literally on LA’s doorstep. Surrounded by natural beauty, national parks, and perfectly preserved outdoor wonders. Whether by car, bike, ferry, train, helicopter or plane, within a few miles or minutes you can recharge and reconnect.
Packing three backpacks we headed out to the early ferry from San Pedro to Two Harbors on Catalina Island. We grabbed a few last minute supplies in town and caught the shuttle bus along the dirt roads and over the mountains across the island to Little Harbor. As we crested the first hill our mobile phones lost coverage and with it our stress seemed to disappear. The handcuffs of modern city life no longer bound us and we were free until our return trip the next day.
