Rancho San Antonio OSP, Deer Hollow Loop

One of my goals for this year was to visit 10 regional parks and open space preserves. Remarkably I seem to have managed to complete a goal I thought would take most of the year in just under two months. So this week I thought I would do something a little special and break from the usual format.

The hike itself through Rancho San Antonio was very lovely; it starts off along a narrow hiking trail (though a bit muddy) and up a small hill. Beylah and I turned the hike into a little loop by dropping in to Deer Hollow Farm after gaining a few hundred feet along after the climb. Deer Hollow is an educational animal farm open to the public with goats, cows, chickens, pigs, the works. After lingering there for a few we cut back up the more beaten path back toward the parking lot enjoying a beautiful meandering creek, flowering meadows, and old oaks. A light rain saw us off on the final few hundred feet of the hike. A beautiful day and a great way to celebrate the end of an epic bout with the flu.

As you may have noticed there are no photo's from this hike. This week, The Funemployment Blog also hosts it's first video. 

At least you know I can only improve from here with my video work! Let me know what you think.
