Walk 500 Miles Update: I’m at 451 miles and I have 49 miles to go before December 31, 2010!
As if you haven’t heard it from me before, I like change. That seems like the story of my life, but it’s a good thing…to me. This is what makes me more of a spontaneous person. Otherwise based on how structured I can be, I would probably never do another new thing Ever. Fun is best served with a little bit of planning and a lot of adventure and exploring…I fit nicely somewhere in between spontaneous and structured. I don’t usually like labels, but sometimes they can be used accurately enough to really describe a person.
That being said today is going to be a day of exploration for me. I basically have a map, and I am just going to go with it. I now live right off of Chateau Dr., so the Telecote Canyon trail starts for me at the intersection of Chateau Dr. & Genesee Ave., and it looks like it’s about 6 miles total distance before I hit another main road – Balboa Ave. You will not find me walking down Balboa Ave. because it’s a very busy street. So, the roundtrip distance on the trail would be about 12 miles. This will be good for when I get up to a 10k (6.2 miles).
I don’t know how much of the route I plan on doing today, but I’ll tell you one thing – I will be walking, photo-taking, and on the look-out for rattle snakes. I hear from Jeff that they are out this time of year – So Be Careful. I’m not going to lie…I think I will scream and start running if I see one. I am not a big fan of snakes.
Wish me luck! I hope to have some beautiful photos to share later. It has been a while since I’ve used my camera, and I think I’m due for some new scenic shots 🙂
Until I write again,
