Still alive after Violet Trail
We went hiking this morning with Sister Perkins and just had a wonderful time. It was up and over a mountain and around and back. There were a few big reservoirs with water catchments running all along the mountains that has several waterfalls flowing into them. These catch all the water as it comes down the mountain and then they detain it in the reservoirs before it can flow back to the ocean, thus yummy drinking water!! We went on all kinds of terrain, some very rocky steep paths, several thousand stairs, meandering paths and then a nice paved trail all along the water catchment. It was about 6 miles total and absolutely beautiful.
