Yesterday's Hike

After heading to the Sierra almost every weekend (or so it seemed) from late September through the first week of November, and then traveling to Southern California last weekend (an enjoyable trip, for sure, but also a long drive!) it was nice to once again have time to hike one of my “neighborhood parks” here in the South SF Bay Area.

As I hiked a familiar loop at Calero County Park south of San Jose, I was reminded of a few things: in the fall when the grasses die back on the oak-grassland terrain you can hike cross country again; in November there are beautiful sunny days when the temperature is only in the mid-60 degree range; there is fall color in the Bay Area, though you have to look for it; it can be more relaxing to hike/photograph in a familiar place than in more exotic locations.
