I’ve been hiking with this lot for about 10 years. We originally met through a hiking club of sorts. Time flies.

Starting on Coastal toward Muir Beach (from Tennessee Valley). 

I love the rugged coastline in this part of California.

Beautiful Muir Beach. 



Almost there. Can’t wait for lunch!



Not much in the fields right now.
Hey, my shirt matches the roses!


Beautiful little hillside of violets and ferns at the Zen Center.
