January can be beautiful in Southern California. Near the ocean, the air is clear and cool. Join us for a Day Hike in Palos Verdes.

From about 1,200 feet above the ocean, we will follow the Burma Road. As we descend, we will pass an interesting geological formation—a terrace formed millions of years ago by wave action and shifting land. We will proceed down to Palos Verdes Drive South, cross the road, and descend to Abalone Cove. We can explore the tidal pools there. Often, sea lions are lounging on the rocks. There are two caves in the rocks. One of the caves goes through the promontory above, and the waves crash into each other from opposite directions.

We can also walk out on the promontories, for great views of the cove. On a clear day, we will have a nice view of Catalina.

On our ascent, we will again have panoramic views of the ocean. Wildlife abounds in the area. We will see ravens and hawks circling overhead. There are also hundreds of rabbits living in the habitat.
