Thank you Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for being born on this day and becoming a prominent civil rights activist so that I could have today off.
Fred and I hiked 6 1/2 miles in the Daley Ranch preserve near our house; focusing on the Cougar Ridge Trail, which we have done only once before.
The water that gathered on this parasitic plant made it even more beautiful.
Well, it got a little wetter during some parts of the hike.
Good thing we are always prepared!
The extra moisture definitively helped to reduce the crowds so we have no complaints.
Three day weekends are too few and far between!
