Hiking Claremont Wilderness Loop

This month's hike was at the Claremont Wilderness Loop.  It was our first time, and we did not know what to expect; if we had, we would have dressed more appropriately.  Coming from where we live, it was like winter, but as it is everywhere else in Southern California, it was hot in Claremont.  So we dressed too warmly.  

The trail is all dirt, great for biking and running, but it is continuously uphill, so one would have to be an experienced biker to use this trail.  The loop we took was five miles.  It isn't covered, except for the beginning, so there is not much shade.  However, there are lots of birds and flowers, and I just loved looking at and listening to the beautiful sights and sounds.  On crystal clear days, you can look out and see Catalina Island.  Our hiking day was not crystal clear.  But it was still a wonderful hike.  

Some of the sights and sounds.  : )

Hi Ruth. You have some lovely trails near where you live. Your children are fortunate. Your excursions remind me of Carol's at Journey and Destination, except hers is in Australia.

I was wondering if you would check out my latest review. It is for a book for children about the fifth day of creation. My brother-in-law created and illustrated the book. The pictures are beautiful and it is about the sea creatures that God made on the fifth day. It is a first in the series of books he's going to make on the week of creation.

It's on sale at Amazon for 12.00

Anyway, I'm trying to plug for Chris and I think it's a book homeschooling families would like.

If you like it would you mind telling people in your homeschooling community? Anyway we can get the word out, we'd appreciate. Thanks!
