A Lovely Hike in Mission Trails - A Photo Essay by Patty Mooney

Mark and I went on a hike at Mission Trails just before torrential rains hit San Diego about a week ago. We spotted this young loving couple walking hand-in-hand. They reminded us of ourselves when we'd first met and shared many hikes in our early years.

There were a few other people at the park who flirted with the oncoming storms, including this runner.

It drizzled a bit, bringing out the vibrant colors in the rock formations.

We made it all the way to the waterfalls which gushed down into the verdant pool, and still no deluge of rain on our heads.

Can you see the tiny droplets of water on this succulent?

I love to be out in Nature with my best buddy, Mark. It's fun to be happy together! After flirting with the drizzle all afternoon, the sky opened up and let 'er rip just as we arrived back at our car. Impeccable timing, I must say!

What I love about hiking: no two hikes are ever the same, even if you walk the same trails. It is a fine trip through Nature in which exercise is a by-product of having fun. So much more spiritually uplifting than spinning in a gym. Try it, you may discover something you have been missing - a glimpse of your very own soul.
