Hike turned golf tour

Today after Mass, Patrick and I decided we should get out and really enjoy the beautiful San Diego weather. We drove over to the Torrey Pines State Reserve to go hiking. The parking lot was closed so we drove up to the driving range and parked on the side away from the driving range. We had a lovely hike.

The kids found a cool cave, and we took the path all the way down to the beach and back up to the top.
Well, 2 hours had passed and when we got to the car the gate to the range was open, but the gate on the side was closed. We were locked in to the maintenance side of the Torrey Pines golf course. There was a back gate open in the rear of the lot, but that led out to the course. We waited for a threesome to tee off and tried following the path to get out going around the building. It was not an exit. BUT fortunately one of the employees was there. Larry told us that finding the keys to gate would take too long, so he told us to follow him in his golf cart across the course to an exit on the other side. Can you imagine what the golfers were thinking seeing a black Suburban following a golf cart around the course? I couldn't help myself, I had to take pictures.
What made this even funnier was that they are setting up for the Buick Invitational. So we had to drive through scalfolding and around platforms and tents.
They will need to add to this sign to watch for large black vehicles careening it's way towards the exit.
