So here's what's up with Sonoma Mountain. We have actually hiked this glorious beast before, but the first time we accessed it from Jack London State Park (which is excellent and definitely worth a visit, but has kind of weird hours if you're an early-morning hiker). A few months ago (possibly closer to a year ago? I don't know.) a new trail opened up off of Bennet Valley Road that eventually spits you out on Sonoma Mountain, and we've been aching to give it a shot.
So, by gum, we did. It took us about four hours and came up just shy of ten miles, and I spent probably the last four and a half miles thinking solely about the Slurpee I desperately wanted. (It was amazing, by the way).

Dad also tried to take a selfie of the two of us, but accidentally turned the camera off instead.
