JJ had to go on a work trip, but the kids, dog and I hiked an out and back trail in a canyon about 15 minutes to the east. One thing about living on the edge of civilization; it doesn’t take long to get to the middle of nowhere.
Low and slow water ran through the canyon, feeding roots of live oaks that shaded the way.
This bench about a mile in made a good resting and turn-around spot. It was a short, flat, easy hike, but plenty of variety in landscape and views nonetheless. And no complaints.
It was just what I wanted for Mother’s Day.
