We went on an adventure soon after landing in California. We were going to walk a trail and I was excited. I love a good trail and walked many in Michigan. It took us a while to find the entrance to the trail. It is a secret surf trail in La Jolla, California.
When we parked, he turned to me and said, “This trail is not for the faint of heart. It is called the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Do you still want to go?”
“Yes, of course, let’s go!”
We got out of the truck and headed to the trail entrance. It was nestled among multi-million dollar homes.
And off we went….
He asked if I was ‘nervous’. Of course I was not nervous…. it was just a trail.
It was not long, before I stopped and said, “Okay, this is as far as I am going. Now I am ‘nervous’! This is nothing like a Michigan trail!”
I headed back to the truck, while Heath went on his adventure without me. My recent back surgery prevented me from experiencing this wonderful adventure. Heath went as far the cliffs, overseeing the ocean. He much wanted to go the rest of the way down to the beach, but he knew I was waiting and chose to head back to the truck.
Here is a wonderful video to give you another perspective of what this hidden treasure of a trail has to offer. People carry their surf boards along this trail. Unreal!!!!
UPDATE June 2016 – I recently discovered that this trail leads to Black Beach, one of the few “clothing optional” beaches in the area. We visited in December, much too cold for the natives to injoy such a beach adventure. (If only they knew what December in Michigan was like)
