Monte Bello Midpeninsula Regional Open Space Preserve

This was a 10 - 11 mile hike on a gorgeous day (Feb 5, 2010)!  This hike took us through many different parks and lots of different scenery.  From open fields to under the redwoods...

Beautiful views of the southern part of the San Francisco Bay by Palo Alto.

I love the moss and ferns all around this area!

Gorgeous moss hanging from the trees!

We came upon this fence that was covered with ladybugs!

At one point in the hike we had to cross a stream by stepping across the stones. It was harder than it looked but I made it. I was the holding the camera so no photos of me!

This is the only thing that scares me about hiking around here...

 We had a picnic lunch at the top of this hill.

Beautiful moss and ferns growing on this trunk!


  1. What a beautiful place to hike.The pictures are great. Looks like a lot of fun not to mention a good way to get/stay in shape. Just watch out for those mountain lions.

  3. This is wonderfull, Cindy! You have some beautiful countryside out there. Here in NJ, it is either snow or mud at the moment... but I would love to find a group like yours to go out with!

  4. I don't know how you get these great photos! When I'm out and doing....I forget to take out the camera!!!
