Remember my post about being inherently lazy? Well, moving to California was probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Weather permitting, my weekend days are spent hiking, exploring & taking advantage of all that Northern California has to offer.
Whenever I’m in the mood for a scenic hike that isn’t s too grueling, I head to Tennessee Valley . A short drive from San Francisco, just over the Golden Gate Bridge: the first half of the hike feels like you’re overlooking the Italian coast and the second half feels like you’re in Scotland. [Full disclosure: I haven’t visited Italy since the 5th grade & I’ve never been to Scotland]. So, if you’re like me and have an insane desire to travel to Europe but can’t (#helpmeimpoor)…take Bobcat Trail at Tennessee Valley.
It’s all about the power of imagination, people.
