Hiking - Hidden Falls - May 31, 2013

Five of us journeyed up to Auburn to go check out the trails at Hidden Falls. Lots of beautiful trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Lots of wildlife, including a king snake and huge tadpoles, and lots of wildflowers, too!

 A California King Snake crossed the trail in front of us. 
Considering they kill Rattlesnakes, we were glad to see this one! 
 Seriously? Cattle grazing?? Okay!

 Karen's checking the map against the sign to make sure we are where we think we are!
 What a beautiful place for an observation deck!
 Lots of mountain bikers on the trail today.

 As well as folks on horseback.
 And, then there was us!

 Gail and Pink enjoying the view.

 Peggy and Lynn taking lots of photos. 
 Lynn's PB&J looked like it had seen better days, but she said it still tasted great!
 Can't beat the philosophy of Starbuck's sandwich packaging!
 Manzanita bark peeling. 
They say the tree stays cool no matter what the temperature it is outside. 
 Pink certainly enjoyed our hike! 
 Gigantic tadpoles!

This fella is getting his legs already!
 Queen Anne's Lace

 Blooming blackberries!
