Beach Day

Several of us headed to the beach today to hike Aliso & Wood Canyons Wilderness Park.  We met up with my cousin Nilda who is dog sitting in nearby San Clemente.

We arrived at the Alta Laguna Trailhead along with hundreds of other hikers and bikers of all ages. Probably one of the busiest hikes we have been on to date.  There were kids running most likely from nearby high schools.  Bicyclists whom were in such a hurry they had no regard for the hikers in their path.  Of course we had a good time regardless of the challenges.

Enjoying the view.

The day was overcast and cool which of course is a welcomed change from the High Desert. The trail was moderate and we hiked about 7 miles in about 2.5 hours.  There were a few inclines but nothing to difficult.

Once we were back at the cars we decided on a breakfast/lunch place called Ruby’s Shake Shack in nearby Crystal Cove right near the beach. If you are ever in the area they have excellent breakfast and lunch selections.
