I have seen these hills above Costco every time we go, and I've been itching to get up there. Finally, on April 3, 2012, my husband and I had a bit of time after lunch when we were in the area to find the trailhead and get into the hills. Here are a few scenes from the few minutes we were able to spend walking. I was quite a bit ahead of him, since I have my original hips, and he doesn't.
I passed this damaged tree as I walked.
This is my husband headed back to the parking lot. He's had enough. I will meet him back at the car.
Next time I hope we can hike for longer, but I did accomplish my goal of seeing the view of the mountains opposite these. It's my understanding that if we can get to the top we will be able to see the ocean.
