Coyote Hills #1

Halloween Hike: Another smaller group today (we missed you Jib!) so we went to another close by hiking trail - Coyote Hills in Fremont. We ventured out on a climb in super foggy weather, and still had enough time to get back in time for Aria's first Halloween (see link to our Halloween album below for our little Princess Leia).
  • Rating:
    Pros: close by, different trails so can pick and choose level of hike, great view; Cons: can be foggy most of the time (and cold).
  • Difficulty:
    We chose a steeper climb this time
  • Best Season(s):
Today's Hiking Group: Brian, Ranica, Aria, Mike, Suporn, & Jam

Pumpkin Patch

Aria's First Pumpkin Patch: We visited J.E. Perry Farms, in Ardenwood today to give Aria a first experience at a pumpkin patch. We'll probably need to go back again next year so Aria will remember any of it though. For now, we have lots of photos were taken with the pumpkins, cutouts, corn maze, and on the giant haystack.

Today's Pumpkins: James, Supak, Miriya, Jonah, Rodney, Brian, Ranica, Aria, Mike & Suporn.

Dry Creek Regional

Since we were a smaller group today, we decided to go to a nearby hiking trail: Garin/Dry Creek Regional Parks in Hayward. We were pleasantly surprised that such a beautiful view (of the Hayward Industrial district and Mission) and a nice garden was so close by our home. Hopefully, we will be able to come out more often for a quick hike.

We topped off the hike with lunch at Bombay Gardens in Newark.
