While Sara was visiting, she, Gavin and I decided to head out to Crystal Cove State Park for a hike. So we packed up some water, a fake picnic and off we went!
A quick look at the weather or forecast may have been a good plan, but instead we cheerily left for our adventure. We found a place to park at one of the trial heads. The only problem is we parked at the top of the trail head. Therefore, the first half of our hike was downhill. the second half was uphill. We eventually settled on a hike we estimated to be about three miles long (our estimate was almost correct).
It was hot, and long, but quite pretty.
When we got back to the car, it informed me it was 110 degrees. The lower part of the park was 75 degrees and overcast. Lesson learned: next time we'll check the weather.
