Walk With Me via the images, prose and information posted below…
“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
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. Allow everyone to enjoy their adventures untainted by disrespectful homo sapiens.
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 one and all in order to reduce cliff edge accidents 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 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.
