We had a very nice hike. The last part of the trail (hardest part) that leads to the top had a sign stating “Stay on trails”, and this seemed overgrown so we went the easier but longer way to the top. Views are as spectacular as always! Met a fair number of hikers today as it is a Saturday and the beginning of a New Year, lots of New Year Resolutions?? For those of you that read these you know I always like a “Carrot” at the end of a hike. Our “Carrot” today was Mimosa Pizzeria where we shared a VERY good Pizza and I had a very good glass of sangria!! Thanks, Dana, for lunch, a very nice end to a very nice hike!!
