The weather was freaking incredible this weekend. For a few weeks every year, the weather hits damn near perfect in this part of the world. The hills are still green and wildflowers start blooming everywhere. Now is the time, and I spent most of the weekend outside taking advantage of it. The lawn is mowed, the garden is ready to go, and some plants have been planted. I went for two hikes this weekend, with today's the most spectacular: a four mile trail at Point Reyes with some great views. We saw deer, elk, snakes, rabbits, giant slugs, ducks, cranes, and only four other hikers on the trail. I took pictures.
