Most people, some might even add most NORMAL people run indoors during periods of extremely hot temperatures like we experienced over the past couple of days. But not me. I absolutely THRIVE on hot weather! Unfortunately, as much as I love this hot weather, I've been stuck indoors this past week, so I've missed most of it. And yes, that means stuck indoors in a air conditioned office building -- how absolutely dreadful! ;)
I'm guessing you probably don't share my passion for hot weather. That's fine. The good news for you is that this weekend brings the promise of a cooling trend .. and cooler temperatures for this weekend's hike led by Andrew and Howard. But don't let the "cooling trend" fool you, it's still going to be HOT! Afternoon highs expected to reach the mid-90s. That means expect morning temps in the mid to upper 70s. maybe even lower 80s by the time the hike ends. So bring plenty of water! :) And the perfect climate conditions to treat yourself to a well deserved snack after a successful hike. Andrew has a special destination in mind to help cool you back down after the Ringtail Cat hike: "Please join Howard and I at the Yogurt Place in Danville afterwards for a nice treat".
You'll find more details about this upcoming hike posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website.
Andrew reports from the field about last weekend's Sinbad Canyon hike: " We had 16 hikers on a beautiful East Bay day. We had plenty of Pleasanton residents. New faces plus regulars. I was surprised that some Pleasanton residents didn't know this park was there. The longer hike was 9.2 miles according to Mz. Diane. One of the big reasons I have not moved away from the East Bay area, is the beautiful parks. I don't think I could replicate this somewhere else. "
Mz. Diane and Will co-lead a hike of their own next weekend for those seeking a more challenging 13 mile hike. Look for details of this as well as tomorrow's Ringtail Cat hike posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website.
Happy Trails! :)
