Hike 16: Valido Trail to Aliso Summit - Laguna Beach

For Hike 16, I decided to venture out to Laguna Beach for a nice quick hike. I headed over to Valido Trail and ended up summiting Aliso peak too! On this hike I was getting ready to hike the tallest peak in Orange County, Santiago Peak - a few days later. It was an especially memorable hike as I was starting to feel better and grateful that most of my pain had subsided... More on that later. 

I found a nice little write up of this same hike on  SoCal Hiker's blog. Check it out HERE.

Pointing towards my destiny ... Santiago Peak!
