2/23/13 - Little Si
4.5 miles/2.5 hours
First hike of 2013! Friday night I went out with Sadie and ended up crashing on her couch. The next morning when we got up, she said she wanted to go hiking. She meant it as an abstract “that would be fun, but we’ve got shit to do and can’t be that spontaneous.” I said – dead serious – let’s go. So we did. I’ve wanted to do both Mount Si and Little Si for a while now. Little Si was a great early-season hike. The trail was not really muddy, and it was a very straightforward trail. This is a pretty popular one - I ended up running into another student teacher from my school, and one of the other people I was with ran into an old friend. We experienced every type of weather imaginable on this one – rain, hail, snow, and sun. The sun came out right as we got to the top, which was great. We got some nice views of Mount Si with trees still covered in snow, and the valley below. I would definitely do this one again – it’s so convenient and a good easy hike.
