After being stuck at my house for several months due to the studies, I finally have the chance to get out for a day without thinking about anything. But now we must ponder the options. The pictures are from Wheeler Peak in Northern New Mexico where I went with my daughter and her friends a few years ago. Unfortunately that is a little too far for a day trip. San Francisco is nearby, but we save this for when visitors come. Marin County might be good since there is lots of hiking there. Tiburon and Angel Island? Or maybe up to Sonoma? The redwoods are nearby and easy to mix with a visit to Santa Cruz, without too much driving. We can say "hi!" to Clint Eastwood and head on down to Monterey and Carmel. Or maybe just go to Big Sur. Since I never drink wine, we don't usually go to Napa Valley unless we have guests. The weather this weekend shouldn't be too hot, so perhaps we could consider Pinnacles National Park. Lot's of choices and two more days to make up my mind.
