Friday Fitness Hike

Mike, Ben, Linda, and I hiked 9.8 miles with a total elevation gain just shy of 2,000 feet.  Denise joined us for the early part of the hike, turning back shortly after entering the preserve.  We hiked these trails on the way out: Dixie Mine, Sonoran, Promenade, Western Loop (and Western Loop Overlook).  After finishing the Western Loop trail, we returned via the Promenade, Sonoran, and Dixie Mine trails.

Views from the Sonoran Trail…

This is a view from the Western Loop trail as we were descending. Development in Adero Canyon is quite the eyesore.
