Local Adventures :: Powder Canyon

Powder Canyon Hike by Ellingsen Photography

I finally got out to Powder Canyon the weekend before last, which has been on my “to hike” list for ages. It did not disappoint! It’s located in the hills between LA and Orange counties, and if you go all the way to the top you can easily see Catalina (at least, when it’s clear). There are many different trails so it didn’t feel crowded at all; we actually came across more horses than groups of people. Which made Dante very happy – he just loves horses! I had let him off leash since it was so secluded, and when one came along I had to basically scoop him up to keep him from getting trampled. Maybe in another life he was a cattle dog. :)

The weather has been pretty perfect lately, so I apologize if I’m taunting any of my East Coast and international friends with these snaps. If I had been there an hour later, closer to sunset, I would have really gone crazy shooting the sunset light. So much loveliness!
