Rabbit Mountain

Rabbit Mountain

Rabbit Mountain has become my default hiking location. If I don’t have time to drive up into the mountains, then I go to the foothills to Rabbit Mountain where I can still get a leg-burner of a hike in a short period of time. This morning, I got up early so I could be on the trail by seven-thirty. I usually hike the the Eagle Wind Trail, a lovely four mile lollipop loop route that is mostly flat but includes a modest elevation gain of about 470 feet. It’s a wonderful place for an easy workout and beautiful views.

I’m running again. That’s something that I haven’t admitted to myself it until recently because although I’ve been making a sustained effort to run regularly for a while now, I haven’t been convinced that I would stick with it.

In Lake County, the socio-economic status of a town is written all over its roads. The wealthy areas are blessed with roads as smooth as silk. The poorer areas are riddled with roads of rubble.

It was the kind of weather that wilts flowers. The temperature climbed to ninety degrees and the air grew thick and soupy by mid-morning.
