I started my New Year off on the right foot by taking Pancake (and his buddy Booker) for a couple beautiful hikes in the East Bay. The light was beautiful, the colors were rich, and everyone (including me) got muddy and tired out. Here are some images from Black Diamond Regional Park and Briones Regional Park.
One of our favorite quick hikes is just over the Golden Gate bridge at the Marin Headlands. If you time it right (either on a weekday, a rainy weekend, or just very early in the morning) the trails are empty and it's truly a peaceful hike. It's also a great place to photograph because of the dilapidated bunkers and ever-changing grafitti. If it's warm, Pancake and I usually take a nap at the top, eat some snacks, and then head back down. Clearly, he loves it:
I hope everyone had a great New Year!
Stay tuned for lots of fun stuff on the blog and website.
