I went again to Briones Regional Park which was so much nicer that it was two weeks ago.
I was cold enough there that at that time I didn't complete the hike.
This time I did the full loop and then some because I missed the turn for home and overshot by a mile (literally).
The fates weren't quite done with me as right at the beginning of the trail there was a "trailed closed" sign. Heck with that. I was on foot at the trail was fine (well just ok) for a hiker, but not real good for a bike, It was also steep in places and had some potential wrong turns. Within a few minutes I was down and just had to cross the creek at the bottom which had no real water in it. This is a photo of climbing up the bank of the stream.
Briones is a beautiful park in winter time. Here is a larger photo of it.
