A Weekend Hike to Garland Ranch

Since i didn’t get to hike on my birthday we decided to do one during the weekend. At first we decided to keep it simple and go to Toro Park which is less than 10 minutes away. But then we decided to go further away since Jeff wanted to “drive” his new car… so we said Point Lobos. While we were driving on 68 we changed out mind and said we’d go to Jack’s Peak which is on the way/inbetween Toro Park and Point Lobos. Well we get there and its closed… so we head on the Point Lobos. But when we get close, i remember we’ve been wanting to go to Garland Ranch in Carmel Valley. So off we go! Final destination! Luckily our intention was to “drive” so we had at least accomplished that goal so far!

Starting out the hike you have to cross the Carmel River. So pretty and fun!

The weather was really perfect. Not too hot, but not cold at all, though this photo looks foggy, it was a nice temperature and the sun was peaking through.

We did a little loop hike that was maybe a mile? Not very far at all.

The hike trail we were on was called Lupine Trail, so we were looking for them.. thought these were them but they actually aren’t…. Still pretty anyway. I like seeing colors pop againist the golden grass.

On this day..
