Los Liones Drive runs through the new Los Liones Canyon Park in the Santa Monica Mountains, near the Getty Villa. A mural honoring the area's flora and fauna caught my eye, so we made a quick stop.
Next time we aim for Malibu, I hope there'll be time... and that we'll be equipped to enjoy a hike here.

As part of the Getty Villa's recent renovation,
the bold square shape of a contemporary fountain anchors the landscape architecture near the cafe.
Water cascades down along segments of the textured travertine stone walls.
