Round Valley, 2014

On January 10, 2014, we started out our new year with a hike in one of our favorite parks, Round Valley.  One of the reasons it is a favorite is the great variety of terrain.  We started out on the Creek Trail which follows a mostly dry creek bed.  We have not had much rain this fall, although there was green grass on the hillsides.  Then the trail has a nice up-hill climb to a saddle–longer than we remembered.  After crossing the hill tops, the trail dips down to the valley floor.  We met several hikers on the trail, as this is a popular spot.  After walking along the valley floor for a bit, we had two final short up hill climbs before we got back to the parking lot.  The total distance was about 5 miles.  Good way to begin 2014.
