The purpose of this hike was to test out my hiking boots (I always get blisters on my heels, no matter what I do) to see if they would hold up for Yosemite next month. Several adjustments needed to be made along the way.
This is the first time I've even seen a banana slug. So gross!! I HATE ANY TYPE OF BUG!!!
We stopped to have a snack.
We're at the base. I just loved the rolling green hills. In California, the hills don't stay green for very long. So, when you see it, it's so nice.
I wore my Garmin while we hiked. I wanted to see the elevation. This is a view of the round trip. The green line is the elevation (you can see the top of the hill in the middle).
It was a great hike and I can't wait for Yosemite. I've never been there and it's going to be filled with waterfalls (our favorite). We both love hiking, camping and waterfalls, so it will be a great escape for a few days!
