Hiking in the local mountains has been a new adventure for me. I am amazed at the massive areas of land with trails for biking , horseback riding and hiking. It is a whole new world. Last year and almost every year there are fires in our local mountains. This area has grown back beautifully with only the black chard tree trunk and branches scattered over the landscape to remind us just how venerable nature can be.
