Dan's Outside

I go, I see, I do, I walk, I think, I like…


***January 1, 2006
– On a day of rain and powerful winds I was unable to get to the usual trails, but I managed an urban hike down the river trail.

***January 3, 2006
– The storms died down enough today to permit an actual hike. I climbed the English Camp trail to the ridge on the Castillero trail at Almaden Quicksilver.

***January 8, 2006
– Back from Seattle last night and time for a hike today. I went out on the New Almaden trail, cut to Randol via Buena Vista and finally ended up taking pictures of oak trees near the junction with Prospect #3 trail.

***January 13, 2006
– After work I had just enough time to get an early start on a three-day weekend by climbing to the first ridge at Calero Park as the sun set.

***January 14, 2006
Driving trip to Santa Cruz and then up the coast to photograph waves and birds.

***January 15 2006
– Almaden Quicksilver: Up Deep Gulch to the Mine Hill/Castillero junction for lunch, then down Mine Hill and English Camp trails.

***January 16, 2006
– Hiked to the top of the first high ridge at Calero to take some photos.

***January 21, 2006
– Late afternoon hike at Rancho Canada del Oro.

***January 22, 2006
– Morning hike to summit of Mission Peak – very windy!

***January 27, 2006
– Quick hike up Deep Gulch to just above English Camp, where Jameson telephoned me for a ride home.

***January 28, 2006
– The “big loop” at Almaden Quicksilver: Out on Randol to the far junction with Mine Hill; back along the ridge to English Camp; descend via Deep Gulch.

***January 29, 2006
– Mission peak again. This time I climbed up the very muddy Horse Heaven route, but took the shortcut just after the switchback single-track. Arrived on the top with fog coming in; soon the peak was completely blanketed. Descended on the main trail.
