I just drew a name from the list of donors to win one of my necklaces (see the last post). And the winner is...
I'll be contacting her, getting her mailing address, and sending this off to her this week.
Thanks to everyone who donated, walked, or helped in some other way!!!
We couldn't make it back to Texas for the relay so the California portion of the team was allowed to walk here. I first thought about walking a track like the rest of the team, then the park, then Lauren wanted to hike up Mt. Diablo.
Last week Glenn watched an episode of "Best of the Bay" where they listed the best beaches in the Bay Area. One of the beaches was a beach with a waterfall right onto the sand... Alamere Falls. So we set off to find it.
The hike started out along the coast (see Jo in the first photo) and then moved inland under the redwoods.
I almost stepped on this one but I didn't lick it.
After a two-hour hike we made it to the cliff where the falls start. We stopped for lunch then climbed down the first cliff. It wasn't too bad. Here you can see me & Glenn coming down.
So the girls went down without us & took a picture of us at the top of the falls.
I think we're all a little sore today but it was a great hike and a fun day with family & even met a few people along the trail.
