Another reason to be thankful for is the wonderful holiday weekend I just had! We had so much fun this weekend hiking, sunning, exploring, and relaxing.
This year we didn’t travel anywhere for the holidays. Instead, we took advantage of the long weekend to get out there to enjoy the mountains, the beach and the city.
On Thursday we went hiking around Muir Woods, on Cataract Trail, which is a dog friendly 7-mile hike. When we arrived to the trailhead early in the morning, around 9 a.m., there were only 2 other cars on the parking lot, a sign that we were going to have the trail to ourselves!
Because the sun was not up yet, we started up a bit cold but warmed up soon after when the first rays of sun started to peak from between the trees.
On that same day we also made to Treasure Island, a small island in the Bay that is linked to the East Bay and SF by the Bay Bridge.
The detour was very worth it. We drove straight to the overlook and saw the different shades of orange, yellow, blue, pink and purple light up the downtown buildings and everything around it. It was gorgeous!
