Thirteen Miles of HOT, Joyful HOT

I couldn’t believe the large number of cars parked at Aliso Wood Canyons this morning.  Yet, in over thirteen miles of trails, I saw only three or four other people.  Where were all the others?  Perhaps they were picnicking in the meadows.  I don’t think so.  The meadows have now turned brown.  Maybe they were breaking the rules and going off trail.  Nah.  I think most of the visitors found a good spot of shade.  It was HOT today.  A lovely, dry hot.  But then, every so often I was awarded a nice cool breeze.  Beautiful.

Stretching ever-so-slightly tight calves and shins about two miles in:
