Morning Hike at Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve

It's time for a morning hike. We need to get out of the house, preferably a place where we can minimize being around other people. California is still in the middle of a pandemic after all.

Our choice today is the Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve, a small park in the western foothills of rural Coyote Valley. 

This early in the morning we saw only a few people, but very nice views.

After hiking up the ridge towards the scenic outlook, we descend into fog for a few minutes.

The temperature dropped noticably, and I was happy to wear my warm jacket today.

However, around the next corner it was all nice and sunny again.

The trail is a one-way loop. This early in the day the park was quiet, except for the cows, a couple joggers, and a mountain biker. When we got back to the car, the small parking lot was full with cars and several families getting ready to hike the loop. Just the right time to leave and head home for a second breakfast.
