Hiking with the Hubby

Saturday was our last day of vacation in California, and the hubby agreed to go on one last hike with me at the Folsom SRA.  I elected to take him up to the west side of the lake, where I hiked on Monday.

Lake Folsom past my previous turnaround point

The hubby was a beast on the trail, and we ended up covering way more ground than I expected.  We explored some side trails that I skipped last time and progressed on the main trail about 2 miles further than I did earlier in the week.  We made it all the way to the next park entrance for a total hike of about 16.2 miles.

The hubby loves nature and had a blast climbing rocks, spotting animals, and following anything that made a noise nearby.

Lots of wild turkeys!

When we finally decided to turn around in order to get back to our car before dark, it started to rain.  We really gave it some gas and kicked the last 7 miles in high gear.  It was a blast.  I actually feel sated on hiking for a little while, but I know it won't be long before the trails call again!
