Coppertone and I went a bit over 9 miles out and back on the trail today.  With the nice weather, lots of other people decided to do the same thing.  Lots of walkers, runners and cyclists.

We stopped for a few moments at Vasona Lake to watch the ducks in the water.  A male and female pair in particular seemed intent on keeping a large number of other ducks from a choice spot in the lake.  They were tenacious in their defense of it.
