The Fog Dodgers invite all residents and visitors of the Mendocino Coast to join us on our weekly group runs and walks. We have runners and walkers of all abilities (and even some bikers) and we have only one "rule" - we start at exactly 8:00 a.m. on Sundays. Exercise at your own pace (1/2 hour out, 1/2 hour back) and experience the fresh Mendocino coastal air.

Fog Dodgers provides a fun, safe way to explore some of our local trails and back roads and to meet new friends. You can find out where we're going to be by reading the bottom of last week's post, then clicking on the "Our Routes" tab above. We average 15-20 persons each Sunday and typically half will go to breakfast together afterwards at a nearby restaurant.

Russian Gulch State Park

An overcast morning; not too warm and not too cold. Perfect for a brisk walk or a run.

The photo below, which is from John Loomis' collection, is a scene from the Old Cabrillo Highway near our route today.


John also shared his iconic photo of the Highway One bridge over Russian Gulch, shot from the bluff, which represents the way sky looked this morning.


Cheryl brought a friend, Laura, and John was there to run also. The rest of us walked down the hill and kept going until it was time to turn around, which luckily coincided with skipping a mucky area. Too bad the rain hasn't lasted long, but nice there wasn't too much muck left over from our little bit of rain earlier in the week. We were 15 in total including Donna who brought a friend, Lynn; Toni and Joe, Charlene, Neil, who brought his friends Sarah and Michael; Fay and Peter and Shari. Of course I have to include myself, Nancy B. who is playing leader of the band today. Hope you're having a great trip Tom and Nancy and hope roger and Nancy are having a wonderful far east experience!
