Sunol Regional Wilderness

One of the spots I checked out during my stay in San Jose was Sunol Regional Wilderness. The drive was long enough to catch up on my audio book and the park was relatively easy to find, though there was a lot of construction going on and the road was barely 2 lanes. Once Jazzy and I made it past that obstacle, we quickly found a path and headed into the trees, along a hugely swollen river, and eventually into the hills, where cows graze and hikers hike. The trails were really steep and reminded me of exactly how much (too much) sitting I've been doing lately. The views at the top were well worth the climb, though, velvety green hills stretching out as far as the eye could see.
