The Urban Ocean

I took a run up Verdugo Mountain this morning, and after the first couple miles I encountered a sight that gave a new meaning to the phrase "marine layer."

Below me, the thousands of houses and buildings of the city of Glendale were obscured by what looked like a vast ocean: the morning's fog, not yet evaporated away by the sun. The sunshine seemed to glimmer off the "ocean," and in the distance, the San Gabriels beckoned in the same way a far shore might call to a sailor.

The descent was less eventful; the many houses, buildings, and highways had returned. But I took many photos on the way up. Enjoy!

See you on the trail!
