Yesterday after work I got in a spin at La Costa with Rich. As always Rich is pretty zippy on the climbs and he has a habit of getting quicker when smells weakness. Such was the case this afternoon has I found myself having to push myself to keep up. We check out out some recent damage caused by some idiot who has a key to the backgate of the property. The bonehead tried to drive his truck up one of the singletracks. He went up a good ways before he bottomed out his truck and had to turn back. What a jerk. Rich the astute steward that he is had already repaired what he could but it will be a while before the trailside sage grows back. Please call the police if you see something stupid like this occuring.
Besides the spot the rest of the trail is in great shape. We went up Vista Del Mar and down Switchbacks. We then did it going the other way. The visibility was pretty good today considering when had the marine layer in most of the day. You could see both San Clemente and Cantalina Islands. San Clemente is over 50 miles away so it was quite a treat. Rich was really on fire going down the trails today. I’m going to give him the trail builder advantage today since he knows every nook and cranny of this place. Not a bad way to speed sometime after work.
