My days have been long lately, so I often find myself hiking at the San Marcos Foothill Preserve as the sun is setting. My dog Kai loves it there, and so do I. This evening I didn’t have the energy for a long hike so I found a boulder to sit on and watched the sun drop below the horizon as a sliver of a moon chased not far behind. Coyotes and owls kept Kai and I company. It is always good to slow down and get reconnected. If you haven’t been for a hike in a while…Carpe Diem!
