We’re slowly trying to get to know our new area. Our first major park like stop was Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve. Its about 25 minutes away from our place.
The hills, even though all burnt up from the drought are still very pretty. Would have liked to take the kids on the mine tour, but they’re a bit too young (7 and up only) so that will have to wait.
The kids did get to enjoy the views and some minor hiking on the trails. We didn’t venture too far because some of the trails were a little more advanced that we thought they could handle; ie, steep and slippery, or had an unguarded drop off to the side of the trail.
Looking forward to heading back to do some more trail exploring some time.
