My friends Nancy and Joseph live in Los Altos and I went up there to hike with them. They live not far from a back entrance to the beautiful Rancho San Antonio Open Space preserve, so we walked over there which involves a steep climb up Mora road, rewarded with some nice panoramas at the top.
We then hiked down into the preserve and past the buildings and critters at Deer Hollow Farm preserve, then walked back to their house, for a total outing of about two and a half hours and a little over 6 miles. It was nice for me to get back hiking which I haven’t done as much lately since I aggravated my SI joint last year. It held up just fine on this outing so I look forward to doing to more hikes in the future. I’d also like at least once a month to go further afield like this and see some of the other beautiful parks in this area.
