A word about the photos. These were taken on my iPhone and I used the first image below as the background layer for all of them. My thinking was that when you hike to Trestles, you feel a little like you've stepped back in time. I wanted these photos to have that 'old California' look (whatever that is). My wife said a couple of them looked like old film photos that have been bleached out by the sun... perfect!!
|Background layer. I placed my photos|
on top of this layer in Photoshop.
|The start of the hike. The ocean is just barely noticeable|
on the horizon. To the left (south) are the San Onofre nuclear
power plants, although they can't be seen from here.
|Unidentified weed or thistle along the hike.|
|Riparian area... Sycamore tree and a creek to the left of the trail. Cool!|
|This is my most abstract photo, but one of my favorites. The hike|
takes you directly under the 5 freeway! Looking up, the southbound
lanes are on the right; northbound lanes on the left.
|Rusty lock on barbed wire fence|
|Because of the long distance down to the water, you see a lot of|
surfers using bikes with their boards attached.
