Three day Carmel sojourn ends with a wimp of a hike, not a bang

The Adventurers needed to get back to the Peninsula today so that D could referee a water polo game in the afternoon. So, after an earlyish breakfast, they headed to a hike up the hill they’ve enjoyed on previous trips in the Mission Trail Nature Preserve.

When they’ve done it in the past, they’ve looped into town and then walk along the shoreline for awhile before coming back by Mission Ranch and the Mission itself.

Today they went all the way to the top where a gate marked “private property” and then retraced their steps before heading up to the surface streets that are adjacent to the Preserve. Lots of interesting architecture to take in and lots a great views both in the direction of the ocean and the hills.

The Mag got some decent off leash time, and got to meet other trail days. Always a mark of a good time…
