Today was really fun. I woke up to gorgeous sunshine and another warm day. Then Jason and I decided to hike to the damn. So we threw the dogs in the car and drove there – 10 minutes away. Then we hiked to the dam and kept hiking. We discovered that about 1/2 mile past the damn the trail splits and there are several camps listed on the trail signs – the nearest being about 3 miles further. So we decided that another day we will pack a lunch and some water and hike to the first camp. We both thought it sounded exciting and we’re looking forward to it.
This is one of the many options we have for hiking in our area. This one just happens to be the closest to home and is also the starting point for a 3 day backpack trip to Big Sur – thus the camps. I am so grateful to have such awesome trails so close to our home and that the dogs can go with us, off leash, without anyone complaining!
