Not Quite Wordless Wednesday-Sawyer Camp Trail

Not Quite Wordless Wednesday-Sawyer Camp Trail

Jepson Laurel area, Sawyer Camp Trail, San Mateo Co

Just the ticket for a slightly rainy afternoon -- a nice 7-mile round trip hike/run/bike ride on the Sawyer Camp Trail in San Mateo County brings one to the Jepson Laurel area, between Upper and Lower Crystal Springs Lakes and San Andreas Lake. These 3 reservoirs are part of the Hetch Hetchy water system which serves San Francisco and much of San Mateo County -- delicious water from high in the Sierra Nevada mountains!

Lottie, thank you for your inviting introduction to the Sawyer Camp Trail. The Jepson Laurel is incredible. It is clearly worth the hike/run or bike run to experience it's natural beauty at its staggering age!

Hi Lottie! It's been awhile. I just checked out your last handful of posts. The Everett condo looks great. Congratulations. Those will be fun open houses. And how I wish I was with you on that hike in Marin!

Looks like a wonderful place to get away to!  It's so green and calm looking there...

Lottie, great introduction to the Sawyer Camp Trail, which looks just so peaceful and enticing!

Hi Emily -- with a paved surface and gravel at the side, the Sawyer Camp Trail makes a nice alternative to mud on rainy days! Being so close to an urban area, it gets a lot of use.

Nice to see you Cece -- when I don't see new posts from you for a while, I assume you're busy, busy, busy. It sure is that way here on the Peninsula.

Brenda, our area is semi-arid, but the Sawyer Camp Trail follows along the reservoirs and the Laurel area is tucked between hills and catches fog, so stays green most of the year. It's a refreshingly cool place in summer, and lovely all year round.

Hi Andrea - thanks for stopping by. Yes, this is a great place to come to relax and refresh. After running or hiking along, all cares fade away.

Lottie, I so enjoy the trails … but what I enjoy more is the ride over 92 to Half Moon Bay. I have so many photos of Hetch-Hetchy … always a beautiful sight for me in any kind of weather. I hope you enjoyed your ride … I am sure you did!

Hi Kathleen --- and this morning Highway 92 eastbound is a parking lot as people evacuate the low lands along the coast in case of tsunami waves. Fingers crossed!

Hi Lottie, I hope the waves didn't cause your area too much of a problem.  I really like your pictures.  The moss on the trees makes everything look so peaceful.

Hello Sondra, thanks for stopping by and commenting. We had no problems along the San Francisco Bay, fortunately. Several coastal towns didn't fare quite as well, and lost marinas and boats tied up at them.

Hiking in the drizzle is very peaceful and beautiful--there's a hush on the air that's often missing on bright sunny days!

Enjoy your beautiful horse!
