We went on a hike one, cold, foggy day in October and were totally surprised when we got up to Skyline to find that all the fog was down in the bay and we had climbed right out of it! We enjoyed our surprisingly sunny (and long) hike (pictures here). Nicky insisted on running up the steepest part for about a half a mile. I don’t think I could have kept up his pace. But, of course, he got to climb up in the backpack as soon as he was tuckered out. We saw all kinds of wildlife – a snake, a giant beetle, lizards, a deer, a deer carcass (didn’t show that one to the kids) and a horse (not wild)! Very fun.
