Since I work from home, I try to take a walk every day at lunch time to get some fresh air and exercise to avoid cabin fever. I don’t have far to travel to find trails to hike on. We’re the last house on our road before you transverse into an area called Cajon Summit but it is more commonly known as the Cajon Pass to the local. The most famous hiking trail in our area is the Pacific Crest Trail which is just five mile south of our house.
I tend to take the same three trails over and over again. I got to the point where I gave them names, the Tree Loop, the Skyline Loop and the Lookout Point. Of the three, my favorite is the Lookout point. It over look the Interstate 15, Highway 138 and four railroad tracks that is operated by BNSF Railway and the Union Pacific Railroad.
The Lookout Point also over look the cross as a reminder of a Mercy Helicopter crashed where the pilot and two medical crew lost their life due to bad weather.
It is where I rode out to see where the Blue Cut fire heading to and watched how the wind shifted and headed north toward to where I live. It is also where I can watch the storm rolls in and skirt along the mountain range and not even quench the desert’s thirst for water near the house.
There are endless trails that I can traverse on via my motorcycle, horse or just for a short hike.
