When you think of hiking Runyon Canyon, what do you think of first? CHIHUAHUAS! I know, right?! I hiked Runyon yesterday with my friend K and we found these adorable poopoo’s for adoption just inside the main entrance. $40 and all of my baby chihuahua dreams could have come true… (Cute, but my heart belongs to Frenchies!)
But soon, I had forgotten all about the snakes (and the poo) and was hyper aware of the current state of my ass and thighs: BURNING.
Well, geez, if Tony and Barbie made it this far…(Sorry, cactus. *And Ken.)
Oh good, another dog! (And Chevy Chase on the trail…) Let’s get a close-up:
I snapped a quick shot of this little fuzzball and his owner quickly offered a posed shot. The dog obeyed and sat politely. It was such a professional impromptu photo session that I almost expected to be handed his dog actor resume right there on the trail. (If you know who he is, let me know!)
All in all, Runyon, while truly one of the most popular trails in town, can be a really great workout. Your eyes will be working to spot celebrities, while your body will be working to hike those hills. Bring your dog, bring a friend and slather on that SPF! It’s a beautiful view from the top…
