Sonoma Mountain

Hello! So this is actually last weekend's post, which I was frankly too lazy to get to until today. And today seemed like a great time to do it because in fact there is no post for this weekend. Dad went camping and I went to visit my grandma. Yes. Big training weekend.

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).

All pictures below supplied by Dad.

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