While most people were still sleeping and would, indeed, opt to sleep in that day before starting to roast turkeys and make separate turkey stuffings, (seriously, why is it still called stuffing if we no longer stuff the turkey with it?) I borrowed a car from my dear friend and headed to Mount Tamalpais to run (or, rather, crawl) up the mountain and watch the sunrise from the top. Because what better gift could I have given myself for my birthday than getting up at an ungodly hour and crawling up the mountain with freezing fingers and a face full of spiderwebs?
This past weekend, I escaped the confines of society (including cell service — oh, how peaceful that was!) and made my way to Calaveras County. Famous for its giant sequoias, this park is nestled between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe. And even though it doesn’t get nearly as much attention as these two big-name destinations, it’s still well worth a visit.
It was colder than what the weather forecast predicted and my PB&J mix froze solid, but it made the hot morning coffee all that much more enjoyable!
Without any further ado, here’s a short video from the journey. See you next week when we’ll continue our Hawai’i adventure!
