Winter Hiking

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yesterday we did our first hike on Mt. Tamalpais since the rain last week.  The Fungus is AMONG US, the newts are crawling and the colors are RICH

As always, click on any photo to enlarge, click the back button to return to post.  The black mushrooms were a stunning discovery and a first for us.  The newt’s eyes are visible on a larger version.  Notice the pole tip for scale on the Chantrelle photo.  Enjoy and we hope to see you OTT (on the trail).

 

This lovely forest scene was taken

after we did our big climb.  There

are several trails on The Mountain

that I call “Just Show Up” trails.

It does not matter how fast we go,

we just DO IT.    Small steps, poles

pushing.  I estimate 25 to 35% assist

with my poles.  When I don’t hike with

poles, my legs COMPLAIN – a LOT.

Happy Trails!
