Since pandemic crisis, we have being more focused on local hiking. We will have to say that it is actually pretty cool experience to explore some of these local tails and wonder how come we didn’t do this type of local hike before. It is much easier and relaxing and allow us to have a hard-core workout on very next day. We explored Santa Fe Dam last weekend. Read on to see where we headed to this Saturday.
So, this Saturday we hiked Carbon Canyon Park in Orange County this Saturday. Carbon Canyon Regional Park is a regional park in Brea, California that was created after the Carbon Canyon Creek was dammed. It links up with Chino Hills State Park on the east side. The reason we hiked this park because of the Redwood Grove. But it turned out there were more fun here.
Yes. It was just amazing to visit this Butterfly Garden in Carbon Canyon Regional Park earlier in the morning. In the photo above, I was standing by a California Sage. They often call this white sage. But we just love the color.
Here comes the famous Redwood Grove in the park. Redwood is native to Northern California thanks to the rain and humid weather over there. We have been to Redwood forest in Northern California. It is pretty amazing but very dangerous too. Here in SoCal, these redwoods don’t grow as tall as those in Northern Cali and they are not as green either. But we can really appreciate this redwood grove right here.
We will say it is quite spiritual by just walking through the nice shade of this redwood grove.
Find some amazing mushrooms here.
Time to go to the wildness.
Our gym just closes again due to the Corona virus spike recently in SoCal. . We usually go to Sauna or Steam room for a heat treatment for the body in our gym. Since it s impossible to do it now. So we think it will be good for us to expose out body in the sun by hiking in the wildness.
It is hot hot, hot here. But we really enjoy hiking in the wildness.
Have a pose with these lovely California sunflowers.
Now we come back the end of the hike.
Hope you enjoy our hiking trip.
