Foggy day  Sucess!

The fog and mist were being blown all around us during this short hike. Lots of spring wildflowers and berries found along the way. It was surreal and beautiful.

From Skyline Blvd  Sucess!

After hiking Black Mountain, decided to bag two other CC peaks, Borel Hill and Windy Hill, while I was in the area. Nice view, but with 1 mile and 200 feet of gain for the entire hike how is this worthy of being on the CC Peak List? Trip report is HERE

It was Windy.  Sucess!

On this group hike one of the hikers with a medical condition had to be taken away from Windy Hill by ambulance. It turns out she exceeded her capabilities which were significanly compromised due to a medical condition she failed to articulate to the leader of this hike when prompted to do so.

Not all that windy  Sucess!

Made a nice loop from the Spring Ridge and Hamms Gulch trails. Beautiful day to be outside.

All the time  Sucess!

One of my favorite early morning hikes and trail runs. It can be a challenging run up some of those steep sections. Awesome view from the top and there is always a chance to see some cool wildlife along the way.

biked up again!

Biked from Stanford, up Windy Hill, across Skyline Boulevard, and up Borel Hill. Descended to Skyline, then down through the Coral Creek Open Space Preserve to Alpine, and back to Stanford. Quite a tiring and beautiful bike ride.

Windy Hill  Sucess!

Have hiked to the top many times. It's one of my favorite hikes (or a pretty tough run to the top) on the Peninsula.
