A trail leads into the distance through a golden grassy ridge with oak trees. There is fog too.

I have found an unknown treasure right in my own backyard. Excellent backpacking is a truly short drive away, and the price is a few days of sore legs, which I am still recovering from. I guess 22 miles in 24 horus will do that too. One big win is that I finally get it about using trekking poles on the way down all those steep hills that this particular location offers.
