We started out on a casual early morning stroll along the shaded redwood trails in the Oakland Hills with the dogs. After an unplanned turn we wound up following a dry stream along a well maintained directionless trail. Verdant dark forest turned to desert after hiking switchbacks up the fairly steep ridge.
Eventually we reached Chabot and then back to Waterloo where it all began, three hot hours later. Temp in the Subaru thermometer read 82F in the partial shade.
My only regret is not eating any breakfast.
So much better than sitting in an office.
