Marvelous weekend, marvelous weather.
Yesterday's 7.3 mile hike started out in thick fog. However after about an hour the fog had burned off and the foggy hike turned into a sunny hike.
Today's 10 mile hike already started out in the sun. This was a hike in the coastal backcountry. Amazingly we had about 1900 feet elevation gain. Being fairly close to the ocean helped keep the temperature tolerable. Downside to these coastal hikes is that there is no shade.
I'll have to stick to the shadier hikes during the summer and maybe pick up the coastal hikes again come fall.
Well, weekend playtime is over. Looking forward to a break in the work week next week for 4th of July. No hike planned that day. I'll be puttering around in my back yard. Building my backyard oasis :) Lots of TLC needed there.
