Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks again to Pirate’s Cove and The Other McCain for the Rule Five links!

On the Saturday just past I found myself once again with one of my favorite situations; no place to go, and all day to get there.  Now mind you, I can’t abide Bay Area politics, but I am frequently in the position where I’m paid to go where the work is, not where the fun is.  So I make the most of it, and there are always some decent outdoor adventures not too far from anyplace I find myself.  Saturday it was the Almaden Quicksilver County Park, where I spent a nice sunny Saturday hiking in the hills.  Photos follow.

Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

First up – our thanks once again to Pirate’s Cove and The Other McCain for the Rule Five links!

On this weekend past, my first in the Bay Area (this trip) I got up Saturday morning to do some exploring.

Fortunately the lodgings here are on the south end of the metro area, right near the on-ramp to CA Highway 17, which goes south to the oceanside town of Santa Cruz.  I drove down there, then caught Highway 1 north up the coast.

It was a beautiful, bright sunny day, temps in the high 50s, perfect for bumming around outdoors.  My favorite kind of day; I had no place to go and all day to get there.  Photos and a video (unfortunately not hi-def) follow. Click for more!
