The Rim Trail--Sept. 23, 2012

Last Sunday the club ran a 19 miler with an uncommon path looping from Chantry Flat to Mt. Wilson.  From Chantry Flat, we ascended Sturtevant Trail through Spruce Grove and after 4 miles we climbed up to Newcomb Pass.  Reaching the pass, we turned along the Rim Trail that follows to Mt.

The Legs Were Like Life

Well, the Backbone Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains is 68 miles up and down from Pacific Palisades to Pt. Mugu State Park.  We quartered  this trail into 4 runs into our Sunday runs.  It was a little of a pain, since we scheduled so that most of the cars were at the finish and we took runners to the start. 

Leg 1 started at Will Rogers Park in Palific Palisades in a light rain.  As we climbed, the temperature lowered and the rain was raining harder.  We then sled down the Musch Trail and the Dead Horse Trail in slick mud in the rain--what a kick!  Then we ran as a loyal group on an often used connector to the trail that climbs  Hondo Canyon.  Now the rain

Santa Monica Mountains--150,000 Acres--A Treasure

As some of our club members appreciated looking over the spanse of hills above the blue Pacific Ocean.  Then we amazed at the million years old fossils on our trail last week.  Don't waste yourself missing this treasure--You only live once.

Member Bob Pietzke recently sent this article comparing GPS units.  Some of the units varied, and foilage coverage and steep elevation changed considerable. Consistent distances were achieved by asking Ernie.
