Day 669: Will Rogers State Beach - Temescal Canyon - Palisdades Park - Pacific Palisades - Swarthmore

Sunset at Will Rogers Beach

Day #669 * Hike #802 * New Track #659
Saturday September 15, 2012
Swarthmore - Pacific Palisades, CA
My Tripometer: 1.5 Hours * 1.25 Miles * +25 Feet

Earlier that morning, Ayden ran in a 3k run at Corriganville, Simi Valley.  From there, he participated in his Club Diving lessons, also in Simi.  --The Day was just beginning...

 Fire on the 405

 Fire Chopper

 The plains swarmed the area...

There were at least 3 plains landing in the ocean and then flying right back to the scene to control this blaze.  With a vast populated area nearby, they couldn't take any chances.

While I was with Ayden in Simi this morning, my wife was in San Dimas with Alyssa who was competing in a soccer game.  The task to rendezvous in the Pacific Palisades was not easy.  I tried taking Sunset from the 405 to the PCH but the route was closed.  I drove in circles and in heavy traffic while my wife tried to navigate the directions over the cell phone...
 Palisades Park - Great Workout - Getting Closer!

We finally met up and made a purchase on some restaurant equipment for the Chill Out Frozen Yogurt shop.  Our hike began in the downtown district of Pacific Palisades...

***Long Drive back to Ventura...  At this point, I am exhausted.  Hiking, Running, Working, Driving = Everyday - No day off....  I'm still 8 days behind on my blog, but I need some sleep - Good Night...
