Practically splitting Los Angeles in half, the Santa Monica Mountains are one of LA's biggest and closest outdoors assets to those of us living in Los Angeles. The National Recreation Area, under the auspices of the National Park Service, is a large area extending from the Caheunga corridor to the Pacific Ocean and is full activities from hiking Runyon Canyon to the hot topic this spring, wildflower hunting. The Park Service's Research Learning Center has it's own bloom report for the recreation area and a very helpful flower database tool. (Via Modern Hiker)
