Another Saturday Hike

This week we went up to Morgan Territory Reserve.  It's a long & windy road up the mountain!  Good thing Lauren wasn't in the car, although sometimes I am starting to feel a little carsick on some of these roads that Glenn takes me on.  The first trail we took from the staging area was called Coyote Trail.  It was a good name, look what we saw:
We stood there looking at each other for quite a while.  Later on Glenn made friends with a squirrel and shared some of his raisins.
We took this picture for Grandpa.  We left the wooded area and walked up to the grassland where the cattle are.  They've rigged up the gates to keep them closed.  Notice the baling wire at the right.

We took a snack break on a rock up at the top and saw Mt. Diablo from the opposite side that we usually see it.  There were quite a few hikers out today.  This is the first really cool, windy day we've had so Jo wants me to make minestrone tonight.  Yummmmmm......

Ma Stiles had an old wooden gate fixed like that. It was at the back of the house and you had to go through it to get to the chicken house and the wash pot and clothes line. I can still remember the squeaking sound that it made.

Did you take a picture of the ministrone to post with the recipe. I need to find a good recipe because Alan really likes it.

I'm giggling at all your together shots while hiking... all at an arm's length! : )
