Shell Ridge OS, 7 miles

This is my new favorite park.  Great water features, dog-friendly folks, lots of bird chatter and plenty of room for all.  You may have to put a bag over your dog's head (for foxtails) to fit in with the local pooches though.  Not many cows, but there are rattlesnakes.

    Hey all! Anything in the works for this weekend? We did the Pleasanton Ridge Monday - an hour straight uphill. I'd be happy to have company sometime :)

    We found the fiercest dogs in the county. Fortunately, they were enclosed so we didn't have to look at them.
    Our trip had an excellent photographer.. Two of the ponds are dry this month.

    You're welcome Ami. Join us next week for more fun. :) Tera, I don't blame you. They were awfully big; their voices too!

    Sorry you left, Tera. They were fenced in at a house. Next time!

    I turned around once we heard the " scary dogs". Hope y'all had a great hike!

    That'd be real easy to do, Thanh. I'll show you tomorrow.

    I need to leave around 11:30am so I will be looking for a shorter option if anyone wants to join me.
