The climbs and descents in Sierra Azulejo were very steep and challenging. In Almaden Quicksilver park I met the REI team for some pictures and video. We enjoyed viewing the mining history and spacious vistas.
It became frustrating and difficult to navigate through Silicon Valley traffic to Coyote creek trail. The water is still flooding the path, I somehow made it through only getting some wet shoes. My hopper training came to mind.
My challenges were not over yet. I climbed another 2000 difficult feet to discover the next segment’s road is closed. I needed to reroute to Alum park and decided to go back to San Jose for the night. Tomorrow is Alum rock park, Mission peak and Ohlone park to Lake Chabot..Tomorrow will be a new day.
