Entries in Santa Rosa Plateau (1)


a tree at the plateau

Went for a 12mi trail run in the Santa Rosa Plateau park in the Temecula/Murrieta area and it was one of the most beautiful days that I have been there for. The grass was green and there were cool grey clouds and light rain on and off. I was on Monument Hill trail when I saw this tree and couldn’t pass up the chance to take a picture. If you live in the area and have never been here, you’re missing out!

On a side note, this was the longest run I gone for in my Vibram Five Finger shoes and after three weeks, I’m really liking them.  The transition from regular shoes wasn’t bad at all and I only got a small blister under one toe which is long gone.  Running on the trail is more fun and it is really cool to feel the roll and curves under your feet.  These are the only shoes I’ve been running in for the past three weeks and I really don’t feel the need to go back for either road or trail running.  I’m registered to run the La Jolla Half Marathon in April and plan to race in these too.
