I was able to talk my daughter into getting out for a hike yesterday. It was a relatively easy one, but we enjoyed it. We got started a little late but we were out for about two and a half hours so we were synched with the West Coast & Hawaii ;) We did a loop of about 3.3 miles (5.3 km) with about 900’ (275 meters) of elevation gain. I had hiked all of the trails before but it’s been several years, and the last time was off season so I didn’t get to see the wildflowers.
I was very glad that the heat wave of the last couple days had broken- rather than the 93 F (34 C) from Saturday we had temperatures in the low 60’s (~17-18 C)! It was excellent hiking weather.
This is the view near the beginning of the trail- doesn’t this make you want to go hiking? :)
