Valentine's Day 2021

We did a Valentine's Day hike with the Gainsleys starting at the Rattlesnake Bar boat ramp. We hiked up the lake past Avery's pond and PGE's Newcastle Power Plant and around Mormon Ravine. Turning back, we stopped at Avery's pond for lunch. In total, we covered just over 5.4 miles in just under two and a half hours. A map of the hike is here.

I ran this section of the trail during the American River 50. I have been talking to Sharon about coming back for a hike for some time. I was shocked at how low the water level in Lake Folsom was.

Like last year, our goal is going to be hiking at least once a month. In January, we hiked Cronan Ranch with the Larkins.

In the late afternoon, Sharon and I picked up dinner from Selland's Market-Cafe. Aferwards, we dropped off Valentine's Day presents for Morgan and Lee.

We finished the night with dinner and presents. We split a shrimp cocktail, a salad, mashed potatoes and salmon wellingtons. I got Sharon a nocrumbsleft MAGIC ELIXIRS™ Marinated Red Onion Bowl and a Withings blood pressure monitor, while she got me a new beard trimmer.
