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

– A nice morning hike at Calero Park. Went up to Bald Peaks ridge and to within a mile of the Cottle picnic area at a point where the trail enters the Rancho Cañada del Oro open space. Next time I’ll make this a full loop. Hiked about 8 miles.

– Another morning hike, this time at Almaden Quicksilver. Started at MacAbee Road (among the throngs of runners and hikers) and eventually headed up Mine Hill to the high point on the Castillero trail before retracing my steps. 9 miles.

– Hiked a big loop at Calero today. I went out on the north portion of Javellina Loop, then took the Cottle and Chisnantuck trails up to the Bald Mountain Trail. Followed Bald Mountain for awhile along the ridge before descending to Figeroa and then heading back to where I started. The whole loop was nearly 9 miles.

– We’ll call this the annual waterfall trip. I got up and 3:00 a.m. and drove to Yosemite Valley. Spent the day mostly hiking around the Valley floor, then drove up to Glacier Point for sunset. Arrived back home at 1:00 a.m.

– Despite the fact that this is another “Paper Grading Weekend,” I managed to get out for an early morning hike today. Hiked out to and along the Bald Peaks Trail at Calero, well into the Open Space land and making it to the top of the highest point on the ridge. All told, it was a 10.5-11 mile hike.

– Did one of my “climbing hikes” today – from Sanborn Park up to Skyline and then to Castle Rock State Park and back.
