Years ago, my friend showed me this trail in our hometown of Palos Verdes. We were best friends and lived across the street from eachother since middle school, so we would go on this trail for exercise all the time.
I’ve had some great memories up this trail and it is such a nice place to go on this beautiful Saturday afternoon.
On the trail, it’s a bunch of trees and bushes, but every so often, the trees give out to the beautiful view we have in Palos Verdes.
I can see my old house from this view!
When the hike ends and I’m back on the street, I always just stand there for a minute or two and take everything in. Every single time I go up this hill, I think to myself how lucky I am to live here. And being gone for two months makes me feel even more appreciative of where I live.
Then I ran the whole 2 miles down hill. Lol, just kidding, I walked.
I walked all the way down this hill. Going around takes around an hour or so, and it’s such a great walk. Today, I let my hair down (like actually, I took down my pony tail) and just sunk in the sun and the view. It just brought back memories of me walking this route. I first started when I was in 7th grade, and now I am a freshman in college, coming home for the weekend and taking this route for the first time in 5 months. It really hit me that I am no longer living the good life at home, but I am turning into an adult.
