Hiking in Monte Bello Open Space Preserve

My first hike this season and it was wonderful. I started late in the day and it was already quite warm - in the 80s. The meadows smelled wonderful, so much so that I was tempted to just lie in the shade of some tree and doze off. Something about the warm and sweet smell of a Spring day. Resisting the urge to lie down, I went on down Canyon Trail. I completed the loop by coming back via White Oak trail. Roughly 4 miles or so. I could've done the longer trail but I didn't want to stress myself, this being the first hike after almost 3 months :)
