Started off at Booty's Road Park and headed towards Georgetown, did the loop around San Gabriel Park and doubled back to the car.  Coppertone got a new pedometer and is now competing against others at work, so she was keen on getting some mileage in, even if she was breaking in new footwear.

We noted a number of large snails high up on mileage posts or street lights.  I'm not sure why they seem inclined to make that much of an effort.

The partly cloudy skies helped hold down the temperatures.  We were thankful for that.

Finishing out at 10 miles just feet from our car we could not have planned the distance any better!

Decided that we'd come back to do the remainder of the trail to Overlook Park on a different day.  We also need to come back and map the South San Gabriel River Trail segment.
