A blissful Sunday after the long week off, last day of life before life begins again (Work).  After an IHop breakfast, Jess relaxed with a pedicure as Ayden and I explored the park outside the shopping center.  I visited this location in my original 1000 days so here we go again, paving a new way to build distance and sweat; and have fun while we are at it...

So, it was later that day and I rode Jess up to Fillmore on the bike to watch Alyssa play soccer.  However, she did not participate.  She injured herself in yesterdays track meet, an even that we attended for several hours but one that I did not warrant the mite for a hike.

With her being sidelined and me urging to explore and acquire more distance, I did just that in the 2nd half.  I don't think, or maybe I was, at this location in the past.  Of course, many places such as these have become a blur .. but an interesting place nonetheless.  An off road bike course, as seen in the pics, in addition to a skate park, that I did not capture on film but witnessed with thy eyes...

Victoria Tunnel Fork

Another day of track practice.  After dropping off Ayden, I took off to Victoria, crossed the freeway and ran down towards my old neighborhood.  I reached the end of this trail in just under 10 minutes, which just happened to mark the 1 mile point.  I half jogged/walk on the way back, forked up rather than going through the tunnel (as seen in the pic above), and found myself too early for Ayden.  This allowed me to incline some stairs and loops around until my little man was done...

Off Route
You can't tell by the picture or the elevation chart, but the picture above was conquered by Sammi and I.  It's a quick straight uphill.  Why you may ask?  -Because I can.


In part to make new routes, we jogged down to the park and headed over to the baseball fields, an area that we have not revisited since 1000 Hikes Reborn began.  My objective back there was to view up, the terrible downhill that Sammi, Ziggy and I faced a couple days prior to my RV trip.  It was a course that scratched the blood out of my legs, and although I do not believe this was poison oak, my legs scratched as if it were.

However, some baseball father came up to me, probably thinking I was some low life scum-bum, with a dog, and advised that I could not be back there, private property.  Yay, this is my backyard buddy.  I shall pass if I wish...  But, beyond the fields, the fence was locked, as it had been years prior when I took the Verde to Two Trees.  This time, no going over, so I did not quite reach that dreaded fence line.  Suppose it was good that day I turned back rather than dropping the 20 feet.  Would have had to climb the fence with the dogs...


I took it down this trail, as seen in the pic above, around the tarantula tree.  I haven't been down this course in a long while.  So there you have it, another way to get around Arroyo Verde.  Just in time for sundown.  The picture above walks me back down to my views and my home; my life...
