Aliso Woods trail run

(click on any picture to see a larger version)

Just a fun 9.3 mile training run with Don Bach on a superb Southern California December winter day.  Don brought his digital camera along and we took some great shots.  Just the thing to EMail to my friends and relatives in Chicago who were just digging out of a big blizzard from the day before!!  Of course, mentioned we were having another brutal winter day and the temperature WITH the wind chill factor was down to 72 degrees!  Oh so cruel!

The above three shots are of our actual route as captured by my Garmin Forerunner 201 GPS & then popped onto Google maps using free website services.

A clear, clear day.

Don liked my pose!

At the Top of the World (1,000' elevation). 
We met Don LeRoy right at the top coming up from the Meadow Trail.  He turned around and ran back down it with us.

What a view!
