I decided to play along with Susan over a A Southern Daydreamer!  She hosts Outdoor Wednesdays and I finally have managed to put an Outdoor Wednesday post together! Click the fun button above to play along or to see more Outdoor Wednesday posts…

Last Tuesday I decided to take a walk after work.  The weather was quite warm in Southern California and I wanted to discover more of the 22 mile “Mountains to Sea Trail”. 

This trail is part of the historic 93,000-acre Irvine Ranch.  It is also called the Irvine Coast Trail.  The entire trail is broken down into three parts: Orange to Tustin; Tustin to Irvine; Irvine to Newport Beach.  The area I was walking in is the Irvine to Newport segment.

 One of the trail entrances is about a mile from my office.  Here are some photos that I took on my walk:

A portion of the trail runs along UC Irvine’s Ecological Study Area.  This area attracts all sorts of creatures and plant life.

 I just love the one picture of the bunnies in the bottom left corner.  They were trying to be so still and quiet so I wouldn’t notice them.

On my flight back to Washington on Thursday evening, I realized that we took off right over the trail and I was able get an aerial shot of the area I walked!  Check it out, I marked my route…
