9/29/2016: Running Point Lobos State Natural Reserve

I was so impressed with hiking Point Lobos State Natural Reserve that I decided to return on my morning run.  As I arrived at the entrance, I found a group of runners with the same idea just waiting for the park to open.  It was great to cover the trails that I had missed the previous day and, once the other runners had chosen a different trail, I felt like I had the park to myself.

The only mistake I made was running from the hotel.  I don’t mind running busy roads but Route 1 was ridiculous.  Every blind corner had a truck speeding north, hugging the shoulder to maintain whatever momentum he had.  It got old quickly; I should have driven to the park and done all my running on quiet trails, enjoying the tranquility of the nature reserve.

    1. Unfortunately not when I was there in the morning. We should have gone there the afternoon before to see the museum. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places so I was happy to see it (my other guide after UNESCO)
