Mount Falcon hike

On Monday, we went hiking at Mount Falcon open space. Although it was quite crowded in the beginning we got onto a trail that had MUCH less people and the hike was really pleasant.

There are “castle” ruins of a home that you can walk around, which is pretty neat. Sidney read that the home was struck by lightning in the early 1900s. It would have been a really nice house, it’s quite big, and the view from it is great.

The weather was quite nice and made even better by the fact that we all brought hats. I didn’t even bring a jacket, I only had a short-sleeved shirt on and I was fine! That in itself makes me very happy.

The views along the trails are beautiful too, especially now that the wild flowers are in bloom. Oh how I love seeing wild flowers throughout the grass and forest, it’s such an uplifting sight. This place is only an hour away from us, that’s not bad at all!
