Walking Everywhere, and Anywhere!

Every now and then I will update this blog with thoughts about walking, and being a pedestrian in Southern California. As of 2014, this blog will also be featuring posts about my bicycle adventures around Southern California.

Taking A Walk At Sunset

Taking a walk a sunset can be quite enjoyable, especially when you can take amazing photographs of the silhouettes created by the mountains and the trees.

Walking Out Around The Pinnacles

Taking a hike out around the Pinnacles in the San Bernardino Mountains is the perfect opportunity for taking pictures of landscapes.

Celebrate Earth Day By Taking A Walk, And Taking Some Pictures

You can celebrate Earth Day by taking a walk, and taking some pictures of your travels. Walking is better for the environment than driving, and it allows you to slow down and see the scenery.

Why Do Southern Californians Fight Over Parking Spots

A few years a friend parked in a shopping complex that included a popular gym. Apparently he had parked in one of the spaces near the gym, and a lady came up to him and got mad because she claimed he took the spot she wanted. My friend was quite bewildered and had been there first, and this lady was upset because she had to walk a bit further to her gym.

Was she really upset about that, I mean really? I think it is great when people go to gym to work out, but why on earth would anyone balk over having to walk more than five feet from their car to the gym. One thing I never understood when people who are capable of strenuous cardio and weight lifting workouts at the gym are the ones who circle the parking lot looking for a space closest to the store.

Southern California has a high population density and people love to circle to find the front parking spots. Even people I know do this, and it drives me bonkers. Since I am a pedestrian I walk many miles per week, and I can walk across an entire shopping center parking lot in the less time than it takes many people in Southern California to fight over the front spots.
