Sky Hills Rocks

Saturday was a gorgeous day for a hike at "Castle Rock" adjacent to the Diablo foothills. (We hiked the Mt. Diablo summit two weeks ago.) This park has nice trails.

There were pockets of orange poppies on the green hills, and few butterflies on our path. I'm looking forward to some Spring hikes with more flowers in bloom.

It was my husband's idea to start hiking last year and thus we began exploring all the great East Bay Regional Parks. It's something we enjoy doing together. It's great for the exercise (I like the changing terrain and incline challenges), a little adventure, fresh air for the lungs, beauty for the eyes, and healing for the mind.

I just invested in some new hiking shoes and can't wait to try them out!
