Sanborn County Part 2 (N37.22 W122.05)

Since we finished up all the Santa Clara County Parks a couple of weeks ago, we decided to go back to a few of the ones we liked the best and see what we liked the absolute most.  First on the list was Sanborn Park which is a pleasant redwood park just southwest of our house.  The first time we went there was about a year ago on Thanksgiving and there was no one else on the entire hike.  A little different this time around with hundreds of people there for a wedding and some random meetup.  We went up on a different trail than last time which was mostly redwood forest and a nice lake halfway up. I think Sanborn probably gets my vote for the best park, but we need to check out Grant Park one more time to make certain.

There is a lake  on the hike, and then while we were there there was a dog in the lake! Yeah Dog!

This is pretty much what all the hiking looked like. A pleasant shaded hike after the first rough uphill half mile.

Everyone gets one guess at what this is.  As a hint it was located in a clearing in the grove.

And then at the end of the hike we sat down for a nice pleasant picnic by the lake.
