Happy Holidays, Everyone!
I'm back from New Zealand and what a fabulous place it is! Another great place for hiking! I took lots of pictures while I was there, and eventually I will get some of them posted online for all to see, for those that are interested.
This Sunday, weather permitting, let's start the New Year right, and hike the Lafayette Reservoir. Will probably do the Rim Trail (and possibly in reverse from how it is described on the web site). Plan for muddy conditions, however, so wear some old hiking shoes (or shoes you don't care if they get muddy!). We will avoid the water tower this time out, as it may be too scary (ie. slippery) for some, given the muddy conditions. The lower paved trail is also an option for those who prefer to avoid the muddy Rim route.
You'll find more details about this upcoming hike posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website. In case of rain, please phone my cell phone at (925) 457-7717 after 10AM Sunday morning to find out if the hike is still on.
Happy Trails! :)
