Hike #4: Milagra Ridge & Sweeney Ridge (29-January-2009)

Home > A Year > Milagra/Sweeney Ridge

AT last we feel like we are hiking on the RIDGE Trail! It was a crisp and clear day, and the trail provided gorgeous views in every direction. Already we can see progress of how far we have come from starting a month ago. We could see north past Mt Tamalpais, the hills of San Francisco, Sutro Tower, the building-block houses of Daly City, San Bruno Mountain, across the Bay to Mt Diablo, the San Mateo Bridge, brownish haze in the south Bay, Montara Mountain rising to the south with Pacfica nestled on its northwestern flanks. It was a fabulous walk, although the wind was pretty fierce. It reminded us that the Bay Area is famous for its microclimates!
