Hike Details:
  • Elevation - not much

  • Weather - overcast, a few sprinkles, but nice, brisk hiking weather :)
   The first real hike of the year! The weather looked a little ominous with gray skies and some rain as we headed up the hill, but once you're packed and ready to go hiking, might as well just enjoy it!
The sun never really came out much, but it wasn't too cold and was nice and brisk for hiking.
One thing we did notice though was all the GREEN!
Considering we're still in a drought, there was a lot of it! We felt like we were walking through an enchanted forest.And the water in this section of the river really is this unique turquoise color. I'll have to research and figure out why.
 We crossed under the Foresthill Bridge...
 We hiked for about 2 miles to get to Lake Clementine, which is really more of a wide river than a lake.
 It was SO great to get back out hiking again with these fun friends and get a little rest (while getting some exercise too!). This is one of the reasons I love hiking...
