Windy Hill, CA Felix Wong

With Bay Area temperatures still being pleasant even for hobos roaming the streets, “let’s go hiking!” seemed like a good idea. So Adrian, Evelyn, Sarah, Sheila, and I congregated in Portola Valley for a leisurely 5.6-mile jaunt up and down aptly named Windy Hill. The best part of the Windy Hill Open Space Preserve is that it is dog friendly! So in addition to our friends, Adrian and Evelyn’s Labrador retriever/pit bull (and three other breeds I can’t remember) mix joined us in the fun. Bue was the star of the hike, posing for the camera nice and often with grace and dignity.
