Yesterday, Adam and I hiked to the top of Bald Head Mountain in Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. The park was only twenty minutes from my apartment but we had never been and were finally just getting a chance to explore.
The weather was glorious (sorry snowed-in folks) and it took us about an hour and a half to hike the steep trail to the top. Finally, at 2,793 feet above sea level we paused, looked down and saw the whole world.
And by the whole world, I mean all of Sonoma Valley, Napa Valley, San Francisco, the bay bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Pacific Ocean and even the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountain range 130 miles away.
It was a sight that took my breath away. I will never forget it.
We hung out at the top for awhile, taking photos and being goofy. And when we finally hiked down (a whole lot easier than going up!), I felt like I had just woken up from the best nap of my life.
I am so thankful.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday! (and go PACKERS!)
