Labor Day Weekend Hike plus

The plan for the day was to head to the Napa Valley for a hike, lunch and a stop at a winery. Rolling from Carmichael about 8:15 am, we were in Skyline Park before 9:30 am.

We hiked up the Marie Lake Road to the Marie Creek Trail. Once we got to the lake, we hiked back on the Marie Lake Road. Moving steadily, we covered 4.80 miles in an hour and 52 minutes. I would definitely like to come back and hike the Skyline trail.

After the hike, we headed to St. Helena for lunch. We had lunch at The Charter Oak. This restaurant is in the building where Tra Vigne was previously located. Sharon and Tom had lunch there in June. Sharon had the cheeseburger [pickled jalapeƱo relish, fries], while I had salad of chicken, almond, goat cheese and plum.

After a quick stop at the outlets in Napa, we headed to Bouchaine Vineyards. Sharon has been a wine club member here since 2010. I was shocked at how many people were there. We did a tasting and picked up the wine shipment.

It was a long day. We rolled back to the house after 6:30 pm. Thankfully, the traffic on the way home was light.
