Quick Draw - Paramount Ranch - Agoura, CA
My Tripometer: 1.25 Hours * 2.75 Miles * +100 Feet
It was another blah week of hiking, trouncing on new yet blah type trails. So to spice things up, I went back to Paramount Ranch to explore the regions that I have not trekked over yet.
This was my second visit to the old movie set since beginning my 1000 Day adventure. For driving instructions pleas follow: Day 639: Paramount Ranch
Walking in to Western Town, I found myself on set. I asked a security guard, who was actually an actor with broken English, and he told me they were filming the TV Show Quick Draw. From what I could gather with the actresses dressed all pretty and the dudes just being rugged, this must be some sort of challenge to win over the women. Just a guess. We'll prolly see it air on NBC or one of those next works next year...
Onward with the hike, this way...
Found the Coyote Trailhead
On my last visit to Paramount, I had intended to hike this trail but somehow wound up at Malibu Lake. Speaking of Quick Draw, if I recall correctly one of the residents of that community warned that he will shoot me if I trespass on his property...
Fine, let's check it out...
Joy, a picnic table
The views up here were pretty neat, but I chose not to include them on this post. There is a trail that makes its way past the table. I forced my way through it for a moment and then turned back. It wasn't a legit trail.
I went this way
Then I went right; many options...
Nice shaded areas back here
This was the 2nd dead end trail that I passed
I considered taking it, but I didn't want to get shot, lol
A deer lurking at me
I climbed the hill up here to attempt a better shot. I discovered a second doe but they both took off before I could Quick Draw. I guess I lost this week's episode. Okay, back to the show...
Back into a field
Back into the shade; I jogged a good portion of this
After circling the perimeter of the park, I turned right here...
Met back up with the water
Back in town
Perfect Hiking Shoes
**I am in training for Mt. Whitney. Obviously this hike lacks elevation gain and distance but stay tuned. Ayden and I just tackled our biggest climb to date. I will update that post; when I can :)
