Yesterday Charlene and I hiked up Baldy, then came down this strange trail that was very nicely built, but possibly not official. Some pretty small red flowers out near the top, but I'd forgotten my camera, so no pictures. Gorgeous hike, though, and my practice of weights and water is helping make it an interesting walk for both of us.

Today Leo and I walked up Loma Alta[Wiki], starting from the end of Glen Drive in Fairfax. Actually a much better hike than either of us thought it would be, all the elevation gain you'd want from a just-shy-of 1600 foot hill, a bit exposed and plain because of the fire road, but coming back down, it's clear that during the rainy season some of the creeks along the path to White's Hill are incredible.

The Bay Area Hiker page on Loma Alta has some pictures which capture the flavor.

my practice of weights and water ??? Are you working out and drinking lots of water?

Wearing 10 lb weights on the ankles and carrying a gallon in each hand.
