Google maps is great for checking out local running routes. Turns out there’s a nice trail just around the corner.
It’s Solstice Canyon in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The plan was to run up the canyon until the road ends. Then onto a single track and connect to some roads that work their way back to our RV park.
Beautiful weather in the high 60’s with the marine layer just burning off. Totally reminded me of running Mt Tam in Mill Valley 🙂
So up I went where I found the Keller House ruins. Early residents that lost their house to a fire. Then connect to a single track and try to find the adjoining road.
But just as I approached the road, there are ‘no trespassing’ signs. Typical Malibu mentality. Buy some coveted property with public access and then fence it off.
I wasn’t turning back so on I went. Found the road and headed down. Then more signs about private property and ‘right to pass by permission from owner’.
Here’s the neighborhood.
I eventually hit the main road and there’s a pile of mail. Uh oh. I’ve seen this before as we’ve been victimized by mail thieves.
So as I’m picking it up, half a dozen cars came by and no one’s gives a flip about it. How can you drive by mail on the side of the road in your neighborhood and not be bothered? Oh well, I called the Sheriff who sent someone up. Hope the victim appreciates that he’s been informed that his mail was stolen.
Here’s the pile showing the junk mail. But trust me, there’s a credit card envelope in their with the statement missing. Someone better watch their accounts…
