Since I met Linda in person last December (actually knew her online longer), we have been going on hikes together around the Santa Clarita Valley. Linda had not hiked this area before. I had been hiking alone, but it is so much more fun having someone to hike with. So far we have done four hikes and today we went on our fifth. One of my favorite places to hike is The Towsley Canyon Narrows. There are many rock formations and a creek runs through The Narrows during our "wet season". Towsley Canyon also has areas where oily tar seeps up through the ground. The area used to have oil wells many years ago. We did about a 4 mile hike and had a lot of fun.
