Day Four Above: I took this shot on the North Ridge Trail in the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve in the mountains above San Jose/Silicon Valley.
It was a foggy day high in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I remember that it was really quiet with just a light touch of wind spinning through the tree tops. At one point, when the fog started to really get thick, I could’ve sworn that I heard “Far over the Misty Mountains Cold…”
If you are in the mood for a great hike among some second growth redwoods, you can’t beat Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve off of Skyline Boulevard in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Let me know if you hear any Dwarves singing.
Where are you hiking this weekend?
If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
