Last Saturday was beautiful so we took advantage of the nice weather and did some exploring. We discovered a great park on the northeast side of town and an acceptable alternative to Noah's Bagels. The park has a ridge that offers fantastic views of the city and an extensive trail system that will afford additional weekends of wandering.

We also took a drive up the mountain to check out Bogus Basin. The entire area is open for hiking so we are planning to take a couple day trips up there in the next few weeks. Most of the locals say that the drive up takes 20 minutes, but our drive clocked in at 45 minutes. The locals must have rose-colored glasses...or insane driving skills.
