Russian Ridge hike (birthday celebrations, day 4)

For her birthday weekend, Sigrid wanted a family hike. Originally, the plan was to go to Point Reyes, but then she realized this was the perfect weekend for chestnut picking, so we went on a hike after that in the Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve.

We started off with a quick stroll to Alpine Pond, which took us through a tunnel.




We spent a lot of time at Alpine Pond and the nature center there.




Then we hiked Ipiwa trail.




We went off trail a bit to find a nice place for a picnic lunch.





Shortly after lunch, we switched to Sunny Jim trail and hiked back to Alpine Pond.


At the end of our hike, we found some cattails over by the pond, and discovered that there are a lot of seeds in one of those things.
