Hike Number 2

Today was hike number two for Team in Training for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Today was a 2.5 hour hike at Redwood Regional Park in Oakland. I will admit that my feet do not hurt as much as last week, well at least my toenail on the toe next to my big toe is not screaming! REI boots, you gotta love them. There was no wildlife this hike, unless you count the dozens of dogs on the trail. I gotta ask, why do you go thru all the trouble of taking your dog on the trail, scooping up the dogs poop and then leaving the bag of poop on the side of trail. Why can't you take that bag of poop and toss it in the cans provided?

It is probably a really good idea to read signs especially when you see things like this on the trail

I am really looking forward to seeing new places and new things on this little journey.

The mushroom is a fly agaric, a highly poisonous, although pretty, mushroom. We've seen some in Redwood that are around 10 inches in diameter. They are a Big Five mushroom in our house.

And some people leave the doggie bags to grab on the way out, so they are not totally rude (hopefully!).

Good hiking!
