When Kathy Petrino looked into visiting Los Angeles, instead of looking at the things that have been built up there, she began looking at some of the different natural beauties of the area. In addition to the many beaches and boardwalks, there are also a vast selection of hiking spots. Such as Stoney Point in the San Fernando Valley where many films and television shows have been shot as well as many different hikes that lead to waterfalls at the meeting points of the Santa Monica and Malibu mountains. Kathy Petrino enjoys traveling and then writing to share about her travels.
