Our hike this time took us through some of the area damaged by the Tea fire our Junior year of college. So many trees were still blackened and scarred, even five years later!
We had a little picnic under the shelter of a wayward oak.
An overlook of our beautiful town. We could see all the way to the ocean, but the picture doesn't do the view justice. This picture also screams of our desperate need for rain--normally this time of year these hills are lush and green!
