Hiking Club

So we have enjoyed a few hikes in a row this month. It has been so lovely. Mother Nature has luckily cooperated and although it has been cold all month long, somehow we survive our hikes in shorts and t-shirts and have even managed to break a sweat. It has been so dreamy. Anyway, Devin has been a hike researching maniac and has found some really sweet hikes that we plan on going on, so I thought it might be fun to start a hiking club. For some reason having a club sounds awesome. I was in a Bunco group once and that was cool, but being in a *Hiking Club* sounds really COOL!!! This weekend we are going to the Sequoias I think, so no local hike for us. But seriously would anyone be interested in going hiking with us every now and then?

Recently our Hiking Club took us to the confluence of the American River. It was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed the hike even though it was purely uphill and we couldnt go all the way to the supposed pond because the trail was overtaken by poison oak. LAME! But it was so fun anyway, we had a beautiful view of the river much of the hike, and we had a great time.

After our hike we traveled down to the river to enjoy our snacks and water. Devin kept dipping Braden into the water upside down to get his hands and hair wet. I didnt get any great pics of it because I wasnt aware of the situation until the end and I made Devin stop. The water is freezing.
I am a spec here on the left side of this pillar. We got to go underneath the Foresthill Bridge to see just how gigantic it is from the bottom up. It was enormous!!

A surfer on the river? Who knew. Jeff you should try it out. Your new passion right here in Sacto. LoL.

Can I be vice-President of the Hiking Club? President is too much work. Count us in for local hikes...we LOVE being outdoors! And yes "Club" makes it so much more exciting!

oh! Pick us, Pick us! We LOVE hiking! We're down anytime for anything. Looks like you guys are having a blast!

Rachelle said...

We're in!! We are a little slower and quite a bit louder, but count on us for yummy treats and lots of fun!!

Sounds great! We love getting outdoors but it always seems easier when you have people to go with.

I also saw you running yesterday, good for you!

Dude! Who is this chick? I should have known you were hard core when you went camping 9 months pregnant! Um, we totally want to go. I hate seeing other people have fun without me. And I hate researching hikes, so Devin's skill will be totally useful!

Looks like fun. I'd like to be an honorary member of your club, thanks.
