    Beautiful hike in the Diablo foothills on Saturday left me jumping for joy.



    It was a great day, good food, good company.

    Beautiful - you AND the flowers. And just how cool is it that your shoes match the flowers?

    Loving pictures like this, it was only yesterday that all of the snow finally melted behind my apartment building. There is STILL a small pile out front but it is small, no longer the 10 foot pile it once was.

    That scene just looks so spring-like. I never complain about the weather, since I love winter sports, but I am ready for some flowers now!

    Thanks!

    Somewhere along the way I realized that this was the same trail I had written about here. My entire cycling career is documented here on TE. We're planning to go back this weekend with the bikes and reride this route ten years later! I also think I'm on my second new bike since photos from around the same time show Thom on his Rockhopper with NO suspension. It should be a very different riding experience. I think we got the Stumpjumpers in 2005 with front suspension. And of course now we have a pair of lovely Ibises. Or is that Ibex?
