Over the summer I found myself visiting a handful of friends in Los Angeles and Long Beach. This time around I decided to stay in Long Beach and really enjoy the Pacific. Lately it’s been really hot in Albuquerque and I take any chance I can get to retreat to the beach. Now I always look up running trails wherever I go and I happened to find Ocean Trails Reserve in Palos Verdes right up the road. While I was on my run I decided to run down the steep cliffs to the beach. This place is surreal. I only ran across 6 or so people along the extra 2 miles trek I took along the shore. Including a group of 3 surfers enjoying the beach to themselves. I’m glad I found that place as I will be going back there next time I’m in the area.
