Magnificently Ordinary San Fernando Valley

We are once again allowed to hike atop the mountains which comprise the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. It is extraordinary how ordinary every bit of every ordinary portion of the view is. In fact, extraordinarily so. However, unlike the old ladies vacationing at an all you can eat resort in the Catskill mountains would say, after complaining how poor the food at their hotel was, "Yes. And such small portions!" Here there are alway large portions of unremarkable scenery to take in. So much so, that I had to resort to a panoramic shot to encompass more, if not all, of it. And worst of all, after taking this shot, it was still quite a long hike back to reach my parked car. I took a deep breath through my cloth facemask and started walking.
Surely you wouldn't need a mask away up here in these mountains. I appreciated your descriptions!
