Sorry about the cryptic last posting. It was a busy weekend, and I didn’t have time to post the week’s results, but you all have done such a good job of keeping me accountable, I didn’t want to get out of the habit of posting weekly results.
So – on Sunday I took a little departure from the past few weeks and headed over to a different place to get in 5 or so trail miles:
This is an interesting place to run. Multi-million dollar homes are perched on the ridgetops of the canyon, and Pelican Hill Resort’s golf course provides the runoff that keeps water flowing in the canyon.
About 1.2 miles in, there’s an opportunity to make a 500’ elevation gain in 1/2 a mile up and out of the canyon.
The views are pretty spectacular from up top along San Joaquin Hills Road.
About a mile or so later along the ridge, you can re-enter the canyon.
Then, about two and a half miles along the canyon bottom puts you back at the car.
Now for the rest of the story…
