WALK WITH ME: Pacific Palisades

LOUD CLOUDS

“Brrr it’s cold,” trembled through my mind as I

pressed my hands against the cold window glass

and  peered up at the sunless sky splattered

in shades of undulating gray, then I turned away

to let my fingers twist the thermostat, demanding heat,

while I sipped on hot lemon water and waited for warmth

to permeate each room before I disrobed and showered in

preparation for a scenic trek through Temescal Gateway Park.

Walk With Me: Park Etiquette 101

People and leashed dogs are allowed on the mountain trails but remember not to litter, not to smoke, and please-please scoop up your critter’s poop. I want everyone to enjoy their adventures untainted by disrespectful souls.

Bulldozers Beware

Warning; power troopers and muscled runners do not have the right away on mountain trails and bad behavior might tempt a serene walker to stick out their foot, or, walking cane to trip you up for the pleasure of watching you tumble and fall because you’ve jabbed their shoulder blades and rib cages with your elbows exerting malicious intent to shove them aside into thorny thickets and shrubs.  ‘Walk With Me’ park etiquette applies to you, too, and reduces cliff edge and hillside stress.

Temescal Gateway Park

Located in Pacific Palisades, California, just north of Sunset Boulevard, Temescal Gateway Park is 141 acres of scenic sites that include oaks, sycamores, a creek and a waterfall when there’s no drought, ridge-top views and miles of trails that connect to Topanga State Park and Will Rogers State Historic Park.
