Rancho Cañada del Oro Open Space Reserve

On Easter Sunday, after waking up early to watch de Ronde Van Vlaanderen cycling race, we decided to go on a hike to test out our new backpacking boots. We found a little jewel, about 30 minutes away from our house: Rancho Cañada del Oro Open Space Preserve.

Today was a cloudy spring day, with rain showers promised throughout the day. I can imagine this place as a small oven in summer. On a day like today, it was wonderful: cool breeze, tall green grass, valleys of spring flowers, many groups of deer, and the danger that a mountain lion has been sighted only a few days ago. We only hiked a small portion of this open space preserve. We'll be back for more.
