Serendipity Trail isn’t the path that I originally intended to hike, but it’s turned out to be so much better than the one my guide book recommended. Luckily, my goal was to enjoy myself, no matter what. not to simply follow directions. Without whatever misstep led me here, I would have never seen those orchids, or that tidefall, or that Shepard rounding up tule elk by the ocean.
