A few weeks ago my hiking group did one of our long major hikes. It was actually a bit more strenuous than any of us expected but we all agreed that it truly was beautiful. It was pretty amazing the different terrains that we ended up going through, though unfortunately I wasn’t necessarily thinking of that at the time. Which means that there were many photos I should have taken but didn’t. This trail, about 6 miles round trip took us up to the top of a hill. We went through some marsh area, some open meadows and the redwood forest. All beautiful in their own ways. Yes, it was a bit foggy that day but living in this beautiful area we are used to that. It just mean that for that day I could not get the one photo showing how close to the ocean we were.
