Tuesday is hiking day

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Every Tuesday I meet with a group of friends to hike a trail not far from home, I have blogged about this trail before. It is awesome because it is a really good workout and takes about 100 minutes (75 for the faster hikers) that I don't even notice as the scenery is so beautiful and the conversation is interesting. Usually we drive up a logging road to a start point, this summer I found a trail from the creek at the bottom that leads to the trail we go on, taking this route will increase the hike time by another 80 minutes, but it is soooooooo beautiful, 25 mintues walking along the flat by the creek, then another 15 minutes up the hill to where we usually start. I go earlier so I can meet my friends at the trail start and today one friend came with me. A few fall photos from today's hike. We walked by a fisherman and on the way back, we saw he had caught 2 big fat fish.

along the creek, can you see the fisherman on the edge of the creek?

    It really is beautiful. I've been googling trails in my area, which I'm going to spend some time on during my maintenance weeks between Calif & Donna. Not quite the same scenery as yours, but beautiful in their own way. One is in a local wildlife preserve.
