This last weekend I had the opportunity to go on a fantastic hike through Sunol Regional Wilderness with a couple geocaching friends, Fizzymagic and Kablooey. It was a beautiful day — the hills were brilliant green, the wildflowers were in bloom, and the weather was sunny and warm, but not too hot. (I did end up with a bit of a sunburn on the back of my neck though.)
We started our hike up near the top of Welch Creek Road and then hiked one way to the far end of the park where we had a second vehicle waiting. Our route included climbing to the top of the highest peak in the park, and altogether I managed to find 10 caches, putting my total just over 3,300. I hiked around 9 miles total, and I can tell I’m sorta out of shape. I can think of only one other semi-long hike that I’ve been able to do in the last year… It was a great day!
