Mountains and Canyons
Sunday, November 11, 2012
It's a 3-day weekend for me so I decided to hike both yesterday and today and will still have a chore-day left tomorrow (oh joy! :))
We had marvelous sunny weather both days, though a bit on the cold side, with frost on both mornings.
About 40 miles north from where I live you can hike the mountains.
We even found a little patch of fall amongst our mostly always green trees.
About 60 miles southeast from my house you can hike the canyons. A much different world. Much more exposed, but temps were cool enough to enjoy the sun.
A bit of poison oak
And here is a place holder for the beautiful waterfall which we were going to see. But --- no water... (Last winter was extremely dry so water is scarce everywhere.) Pretty nonetheless.
Total for both days about 30 miles.
