Almaden Quicksilver County Park: Worth the Walk, Part 3 of 3

Here was the payoff.  We walked through gorgeous meadows like this:

Saw unique looking madrone trees with their flesh-like bark and moss-covered branches:

Had a canopy over us most of the day, keeping off the drips:

And ate lunch on top of the hill (I call it a mountain!) with a panoramic view of the entire valley below us:

The end of a long trek, my feet and legs ached, and although badly in need of a shower, Teddy and I busted to get over to Barley's soccer game.  Still, we were happy.  The 11-year old reported no soreness or injury to any part of himself (grrrr...) while I felt better once I was able to take a hot shower.

The next morning, Teddy attempted to make me feel better by claiming his foot did hurt now from the hike.  I asked if it was both feet, and he said just the one he stubbed his toe on in the morning.  I laughed and thanked him for trying to make his old mother feel better...but if it was only one foot that hurt, that was from stubbing his toe, not the hike.
