Little Yosemite

It was kind of a last minute decision to go to Little Yosemite in Sunol (located about 1 hour south of SF). I pretty much looked at google maps and pointed at a little patch that looked green and decided that I wanted to go on a hike. Joe and I have been talking about doing more outdoorsy stuff for a while now, and it was so convenient hopping in a car and getting out of the city.

The images don’t really do the scenery justice, but this was one of the gorgeous trails

The trail was really easy and absolutely scenic. However, you’ll noticed the sound of planes fly overhead ever so often. I guess it’s really hard to get away from it all… but overall, it was really relaxing spending the morning doing a light hike.

This is where we stopped and turned around.

I’ll probably come back here again soon… and maybe bring my bike. I’ll need to do some research first to see if they allow it in this park.

If you notice the sign, it says “Watch out for snakes!”

I may need to bring a longer lens next time as well. There’s a ton of wild life–we saw deer, turkeys, etc. Also, a little tip, if you decide to visit Little Yosemite make sure to bring extra water–it’s hella dry.
