Later there was chapparal, buck eye, California bays, coyote mint, Redwood, and California nutmeg. For a canyon there seemed to be very little fern growing. I am curious to find out why that is.
The waterfalls and creek, however were the highlight. It was reassuring to know there is water flowing somewhere. Yep that's me in my A's cap and pink backpack. Turns out the three of all wore our A's caps. It wasn't planned but it was a nice family touch. A couple of times other hikers passed us saying let's go A's! Ha!
We had an after hike meal at Original Joes in San Jose. Original Joes is an old Italian restaurant and a blast from the past and the food was excellent and the company was the best! Two of my guys, things could not get better!
This hike is about an hour and 15 minutes from where I live but I am so glad we made the trek.
