Purisima Creek Redwoods, an hour south of San Francisco, is the Mt. Tam of the Peninsula. The parking lot is full, the open space preserve is busy, but as soon as you put in some mileage and hike toward the summit, you only see ripped mountain bikers with true grit. Can’t say I’d go again,
During the homily, the priest talked about some of the things my uncle loved. A few of the things caught me by surprise and it made me wonder if people know what I love. I LOVE: Books and libraries, fiction Looking at great art, going to museums Getting mail—the good kind, not bills or credit
We headed to the outdoors today. I wanted to pick a hike specifically in the East Bay versus Marin, the Peninsula, or the South Bay. I decided on Joaquin Miller Park in the Oakland hills. I’m embarrassed to say in all my years of hiking, I’ve only been to the community center at Joaquin Miller.
