As my entry to “Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge,” I humbly submit some pictures from my Labor Day Hike along the Los Gatos Creek Trail and up (and, back down) St. Joseph’s Hill!

I didn’t bring my trusty Nikon D40 on this hike.  All of these pictures were taken with my iPhone 6.

You too can take this hike.  I started at Vasona Park and made one 7 mile loop down the Los Gatos Creek Trail, climbed up to the top of the Dam at Lexington Reservoir, climbed up St. Joseph’s Hill, and took the Flume Trail back to Los Gatos.  A short hike through a nice neighborhood in Los Gatos will take you back to the Los Gatos Creek Trail.  There are a couple of good climbs (total elevation gain was 650 feet).  I would rate this as a moderate hike.  Bring plenty of water and a snack.

Visit the Santa Clara County Parks site and the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District site for more information!

Where are you going to hike this weekend?

If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
