Our hike started out quite chilly.

We came across this prehistoric creature. ;)

Bridge looks a bit rickety...

Egg break!

Here we are, in shorts and tanks, at the end of January. Crazy. The temps hit the eighty degree mark.

The Loma Prieta Grade Trail is on a former railroad grade.

First time seeing blue fungus.
