Despite a trip the next day Cynthia was up for for a hike (thanks Cynthia), so we drove to Portola Redwood SP on alpine road. We got there early before everyone else and had a nice clean drive except for poor Cynthia who got blanketted in heavy fog and rain at the top of skyline (I was luckier with pagemill)


Cynthia came back from that direction eventually :)

We then went for our 13-14 mile Peter Creek Loop. It was rated for 6.5h, but it was closer to 4.5h without stops for us (the were other loops, but they were closed to the recent fires):


some trees were hollow due to past fires

We found a nice classic car that had clearly been there for a while:



ok, maybe it needs a slight tuneup

On the way back down, we met most of the people who had just arrived for the 3 day weekend. We went to check out the visitor center that had now opened:







Thanks to Cynthia for joining me on the nice hike.
