The Meanderthals (that's what we call our group) took a fall color hike on Nov. 20 up the Gabrielino Trail in the lower Arroyo Seco from Jet Propulsion Lab to Paul Little Picnic Area, about 7 miles round trip. Here's what winter looks like in L.A.'s backyard, the Angeles National Forest. Check our calendar to join one of our winter hikes.
