Basically, I am absolutely addicted to hiking, and of all the outdoor adventure sports I have tried, it remains my first love and favorite outdoor activity- No kidding, I am head over heels for it!
While perusing the travel section of the NY Times Online, I stumbled across an article very near and dear to my <3! I was immediately intrigued by the title, "A Hidden Secret in California", and realized it was about two of my favorite things in the world - hiking and the San Francisco Bay Area!
Apparently the secret the article reveals is Purisima Creek Redwoods,one of 26 preserves that make up the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District — a collection of protected parcels of nearly 60,000 acres between San Francisco and San Jose. So I'm sorry- this has been in my backyard my whole life, and I have never been?!??? (At least I feel slightly better, knowing that it is a "hidden secret"
