Hiking in the hills between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach on a Saturday morning.

After a 7 am start and 4 hours of hiking, this is the view on the way back to the trail head.

Perfect 70 degree July morning for our 9 mile hike. Total elevation gain is 2,000 feet, a good training hike for the mountains.

Looking north, towards Newport Harbor and a dozen or so sailboats.

Very nice view from a single-wide.
