Yes, it’s Super Bowl Sunday. Yes, we went on a 6 mile hike at 2pm instead of hanging out with friends watching the kick-off. Normally, we would be with friends and family watching the big game, eating and drinking whatever we want. This year worked out to be a little bit different than that! (And we’re not complaining).
The weather today was outstanding; the sun was out, there was a little bit of wind, and it was warm up on the plateau. We decided to hike the other side of Tenaja Road this time so that we could see Vernal Pools. We took a new trail and were very pleasantly surprised. It was a steep hike at times (both uphill and downhill). We hiked about 3.5 miles to the pools, spent some time walking the small boardwalk there, and then headed back to our car. We took a different trail back to the parking lot which ended up being a lot flatter than the trail there.
We got back home in time to grab some drinks and head over to our sister’s house to catch most of the game!
