Hiking And Camping Sugarloaf Ridge State Park

THE NEXT MORNING WE DID SOME WORKOUT BEFORE WE HEADED BACK TO SACRAMENTO...  On the way back, we stopped by at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, a popular camping ground for locals and visitors.

Entrance fee for us is $8 cos it is only a day, for those night campers, it cost a bit more.  I did not know what is in store until I was told to put on a sweater and do some hiking up the hill... Really did not mind at all, at least I could shed off some calories from the cheese pizzas I took during dinner the night before... LOL...

Sugarloaf Ridge State Park is where the headwaters of the Sonoma Creek run through gorge and canyon, across the meadow floor beneath scenic rock outcroppings. With 2,700 acres, the park has 25 miles of trails for hiking, horseback riding and bicycle use.  There is also a self-guided nature trail along Sonoma Creek that starts near the campground.  Deer, bobcats and gray foxes can be seen in the park. From the 2,729-foot summit of Bald Mountain on a clear day visitors can see views of the Sierra Nevada and the golden gate bridge. 
This is the place where we left our prints.... 
Sonoma Creek....
Where the campers hike and camp...
Nature lovers will love this place....
As for me, spending a couple of hours here will be good enough..
For I was freezing at that moment of time.... 
After taking a few pictures, we ran to the car to escape from the cold...
That was when my BIL suggested going for a hike... 
Up the hill....
Up the hill like Jack and Jill....
No problem.... I don't mind walking at all....
Shouldn't be a problem.... ahemmmm..
Taking pictures as we huffed and puffed... 
Soon we were up where we belong... 
The Green Green Grass of Home....
We're on the...Top of the world... 
We have joy, We have fun...
We have Season In The Sun...
