It's been really cold here in Northern California this past week! I know some of you will laugh at what we call cold but there have been days where it doesn't get out of the 40s and that is COLD for us!
There is snow in the hills all around us and it's so pretty! They say the snow level will get really low, down to 500 ft elevation Friday night/Saturday morning! I'm so hopping we get snow in the valley! It snowed here when I was a baby and then again when I was 15 and that's the only time we've actually had snow on the ground here! It will be exciting if we get it again! A couple weeks ago it was in the mid 70s!!! I think this has been a bizarre winter for most of us! Right?
Last Sunday I went hiking (my 6th week in a row) and we came upon this stream but no bridge! Some of the group walked across large mossy rocks to get to the other side, another person walked across a large log but I decided to take my shoes and socks off and walk through the water. Did I mention there was snow up in this area? The water was so cold but I knew I would be less likely to fall in if I did it my way and luckily I made it across...my feet were numb but after hiking for a few minutes they warmed up again. Luckily we only had about another 1.5 miles left on our 10 mile hike! Someone may or may not have fallen in...he asked that I don't blog about that! LOL
I'm so addicted to hiking now! I feel like I'm living for the weekends so I can go again. It feels so good to physically push myself! Don't worry, I won't be blogging about hiking all the time here...I'm actually thinking of starting another blog just for that so I can keep track of how many miles of hiked and where I've been. I'll let you know, in case you are interested.
I would like to thank Priya at Once Upon a Tea Time - Design Stories for her post she did on me!
