This was the most fun I had in weeks. Beautiful day, beautiful people, and good food at the farmers market. I recommend the beacon wrap and the kettle corn.

Beautiful trail, especially on a rainy sunday afternoon! You can get lost among all the different connecting trails in Juaquin Miller Park, but its worth the exploration!

A bit muddy but beautiful. Lots of little waterfalls along the Tres Sendas trail. We saw ppl but not overly crowded. Lovely environment.
