A Sunday walk along the batiquitos lagoon trail in Carlsbad is always a pleasure. On this day a man and his son were wearing some cross-country type backpacks, perhaps testing out their equipment and its weight before heading off on an adventurous trek.
Then there was another style of backpacking . . . which I am sure the youngster enjoyed. These two were not far behind the pros.
I did find a video on Youtube to give you an idea of this lagoon. Wide trails are well-maintained. If only the sound and fury of the I5 Freeway didn’t spoil this area which has been disturbed by what some call progress.
