This was another one of the rare times that I carry a camera on a run so I thought I’d share some California scenes. Nothing groundbreaking here, just a few nice photographs to enjoy!
The Santa Cruz Mountains are a giant playground for trail running. One of the best areas is little known Pescadero Creek County Park. Together with three smaller parks abutting the borders of Pescadero Creek Park and further links to the Skyline Ridge Parks and Big Basin, there is tens of thousands of acres of protected lands a short drive from the Bay Area metropolis. The best part about Pescadero is the variety, including old growth redwoods, ridge vistas, meadows, and stream crossings. The loop I did with Gary Gellin was 20.2 miles with 3,850 feet of climbing.
