Yesterday evening, we brought Maya on a hike at Mission Peak. We started around 5:30pm, and it took us about 2 hours to get to the top and another hour to get back down for the 6 miles round trip. The last 1/5 of the trail was really rocky and steep, but the scenery at the top was well worth it. I was glad we brought flash lights with us, cause it sure was dark after sunset.
We encountered a few cows along the way. Maya was excited to see the first one when there was still light, but we were afraid to upset the cow, so pulled her far away. The other group of cows we saw was at the top of the hills and in the dark. Maya was a bit startled by those "big black moving objects that make weird moos" and almost started to bark. When we got back to the parking lot, we also encountered a big group of deers, but Maya didn't seem to be bothered by them.
The trail was challenging for me, but seems quite easy for her. However, she did spend her whole day sleeping today. Too bad it was too dark last night and I was trying very hard to catch up with my athletic companions (including Maya), so I didn't get to take any pictures.
