We live in such a beautiful place. And it is mornings like today where it is obvious. Pristine blue skies, no wind, clear and calm waters....I wish I had my camera with me for the run to document the beauty that surrounded us. We dropped Tami's car off at St. Mary's catholic church in the Arcata Bottoms (where there are miles and miles of farm roads with nothing other than cows to think about) and all drove north, practically to Westhaven. We parked our car at Crannell Road and started our run there.
There is a trail, called Hammond Trail, which runs parallel from this point to Arcata.
12.3 miles and one hour and fifty minutes later...we were starving! We drove into McKinleyville and found the nearest taco truck. By the way...Riley was AWESOME!!! 2 hours in that stroller...no talking...just looking around and watching the world pass him by. Tom pushed him, which is no easy feat since our "little man" weighs about 40 lbs.
Messy mexican....the best treat after such an exhilarating and exhausting experience!
