Close BM is a quick walk up from Moulton Meadows Park in Laguna Beach. The second OC peaklet bagged on Superbowl Sunday morning. Nice views into Aliso Canyon, the ocean and Laguna Beach. I'd been through the park on a number of trips, but never up to the local high point with the official OC benchmark.
