I'm going back to Sage Creek High School, and this time I'm taking the right trail --on the other side of the school.  Out Lake Blvd. to Cannon.  Then to the end of Cannon and...  Where's the school?? Was it at the other end?  Should I have turned Left instead of right off of Lake?  But that's in the opposite direction of the Lake (Calavera).  Oh wow, guess I'll have to call it a day.  But wait!!  As I'm going back up Cannon --after turning around at the dead end, I see a trailhead on the other side of the street (that I had passed).  Well, I'll go check that out.  I guess I can park here.  It looks like I'm in the bike lane; no other cars parked.  I don't see any no parking signs

This looks interesting
Not sure where it goes, but looks like it's in the direction of the lake
This is a fairly steep decent, so once I commit myself...
If that's a dirt path on the side I'll take that instead of walking on asphalt
I think that person just came off that path
xxxx
Don't know why I didn't take a closer picture of the path
There was a very short wooden bridge over a "muddy spot" (just visible on far left) then onto the path
A lot of dog poop along the way...unless that's mountain lion or bear scat --ahem

xxxxxx.................................Well, whatta ya knowxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxI come upon this interesting rock down one of the paths I follow...off the main triai (right)
xxxThis is the distant trail I saw last week...I'm a lot closer to it now
xxx

So now I see where this main trail goes to
It looks like it ends, but actually veers off to the right...
xx

as can be seen here
It goes out to Carlsbad

Hello Hello...can anybody hear me??

Ocean Hills neighborhood with, I believe, the snowy Palomar Mountains

There's that Treatment plant again, and the water tank

More of the same

Follow the path and see where it goes

Can't get enough of the snowy landscape, er, mountainscape

xxxOK, overkill

This goes in the direction of the lake and Calavera Mt.

Path on the left seen in photo above
I started down the one on the right, but again, goes towards the lake
xxx
.....
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxSame path as seen in photo above next to rock
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxI was waiting to get this runner in silhouette at the top of the rise, but he went just so far --twice-- then turned back
xxx

Aah, so this is where it is
xxx
..............
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxI wanted to get a compressed shot of the trail going
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxback towards the park...this gal completed the picture

Back on the road back to Cannon, and I realize this is the same
gal that was on the main trail
She's taking the dirt path I took, so I'm going back on the alphalt
xxx
.........
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.......................................What's goes down must go back upxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.....xxThis is the path on the opposite side high up
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxwhich I'll take the next time --maybe
xxx

OK, you're going to get a whipping once I catch up with you kids

You didn't think I was serious, did you??
xxxxxOr maybe the leash is for the dog (on right) which incidentally jumped up on the photographer several times
I pushed it off shouting, Down Down
The mother apologized, so maybe she thought I was taking her picture to hand over to the Authorities
xxx
Thus concludes another day at the lake...or environs thereof
