Little Si 4/9/2015 with Derek and Finley

What a great day!

Little Si is possibly the most popular hike in the area.  Relatively speaking it is a gentle hike – Little Si is the little brother of Mount Si – but it is far from flat, and is challenging enough that the hike to the top is terrific exercise.

Particularly for Derek, who carried Fin on his back the whole way.

We went from bottom to top (with a detour through the Boulder Garden) and back down in just over 3 hours.  From there we went to the local excellent Mexican Restaurant (Ana’s, for the record) and from there up to a nearby playground because Derek and Grampy wanted to play.

A wonderful day – we have many more hikes we want to do, and our next planned hike is a week from Sunday, the 19th, while Jill, Brittany, Finley, Granny Janny and many others celebrate the little new guy who is coming in June.
