Look...up in the sky! In all of the times I have run upon this trail, I have never seen a paraglider here. Good thing I have my DSLR with me today
This paraglider appears to be landing, but is actually about to catch an up draft
The view from near the top of Burma Road overlooks the stretch of Abalone Cove to the Terranea Resort (expected to open summer 2009)
Another paraglider flies overhead (mom, Valerie, and I wonder where they are launching from)
This one appears to be landing on the other side of that hill
This is the first time mom has been on this trail. I have decided to walk with her because my joints have not yet recovered from my first marathon...which was only six days ago. Valerie is running the full trail (and should be coming down the hill any moment)
Just as I predicted!
She's too fast for my camera!
As mom and I walk back up the hill, we catch up with Valerie (whenever there is shade)
It is too hazy to see Catalina Island today
I thought we could see the lowest point of Burma Roadl from this cliff, but a hill blocks the view
The homes atop these rolling hill are "behind the gates"
