This weekend, the four of us went to hike a portion of a trail called Mt. Sanitas. It is one of the most popular loop trails here. It is 3.1 miles long, moderate to strenuous with an elevation gain of 1,357 feet, if you take the whole loop. We had only planned to take a half mile knowing the whole loop would probably be too difficult for the kids, not to mention it was already 4:30pm and the sun had begun it's descent. When we arrived, we could choose to take the left side ascent, known to be steep and strenuous, or the right side, known to be an easier, more gradual ascent. Again, thinking we would only do a short part of the hike, we took the left, more strenuous route.
I have one more beautiful thing to share about this weekend. As a lady passed by us on the street mall yesterday, I noticed the strutting, spunky, fluffy sheepdog mix she had on her leash. As soon as I saw the dog, it reminded me of Walter, who we just saw in the pound 2 days before. I said smiling, "There's a dog just like that in the pound." And she said, "This is the dog from the pound, I just adopted him yesterday!" I so love happy endings :).
Good Monday to you
Linking with Amanda...
