Frolicking in the Foothills

Drive just 20 minutes northeast of downtown L.A., and you can be in the rural, rolling foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, where horses outnumber Hummers and quiet cul-de-sacs dead end into the wilds of the canyons. I wrote about two of these foothill communities, La Canada Flintridge and Sunland-Tujunga, recently for the LA Times. The sleepy pace, fresh air, country cooking, and beautiful scenery of these neighborhoods are truly a world apart from the frenetic, smog-choked city sprawl below.
