Beautiful day on Mount Wanda as well as Mount Helen, both which are named after John Muir's daughters. Everything was so lush and green.

Downed trees across the trail.

No trail names.


  1. Of all the treks you ladies make, Mt. Wanda is my favorite and I am green with envy when you go there. Growing up in Pleasant Hill, I knew (and LOVED) the Muir house but never knew about the surrounding hills - long before hiking was on my radar. And I still actually have dreams about the trestle. This was lovely - was that a little gopher? Thank you for sharing. :-)

  2. We are so fortunate to live amongst so much beauty - just have to look around ourselves.
