New Year's Day Hike: Little Bennett Regional Park

A couple years back we started a new tradition I'm loving: the New Year's Day Hike. It's for people like us who can't stay up to watch the ball drop, but want to start the new year off on the right foot.

This year we tackled Little Bennett Regional Park. The hike we took brought us along the perimeter of the park, and made for a 10 mile or so trip.

The hike was fairly easy to do, with no massive changes in elevation, and the main challenge being muddy trails. Oh, yeah, there's a stream crossing which required us to take our boots off for and walk through calf deep (or knee deep, if you're Shira) water. Good gosh that water was chilly!

While the hike lacked a breathtaking vista, it had solitude and a wonderfully relaxing woodsy feeling. The weather being sunny and in the mid 50's didn't hurt either.

Here's to a 2012 filled with outdoor (and indoor) adventures!
