June 8, 2020

Today Dad had his second cataract surgery.  Since I couldn't even go into the hospital with him, I took a drive into a couple of local canyons just because I could.  

First I drove into Pico Canyon.  Google maps made it look like I could drive for miles and eventually come out at a different highway.  Alas, it was gated after only a short distance.

The second canyon I drove into was called Towsley Canyon.  It was a very similar canyon.
