Hello, friends! I hope you're enjoying this lovely Sunday. My weekend has been so relaxing. Evan and I slept in yesterday, went for 5.5 mile hike and then headed to a BBQ last night. Between the hike and the BBQ, it definitely felt like a summer day. No complaints here!
We went to Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve to tackle 5.5 miles. (You can read about our other hikes here.)
Rancho San Antonio is only about 20 minutes from our apartment. It's so weird that we live in the heart of Silicon Valley, yet we're so close to parks, foothills and preserved land. It's really just the best of both worlds.
Like I said, we did a 5.5 mile hike - we also climbed about 800 feet. My thighs could definitely feel the elevation change!
There were SO many people out on the trails yesterday. It was so great to see people being active and enjoying the weather. We also ran into quite a bit of wildlife!
Deer! They were so calm and even posed for pictures - fun!
The trail took us right by Deer Hollow Farm, so we saw some cows, goats and a beautiful garden.
There's just something about painted wooden signs in a garden that make me happy - they're just so natural. I love it!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!
