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...

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
