5.5 miles in El Corte De Madera Creek Open Space Reserve

The March and Munch hiking group hasn’t done any pot luck picnic for a while until last weekend and that was a perfect hiking picnic.

It was after all the climbing and roughly at 2/3 of the entire trail. We felt very rewarded when we found a picnic table that is nicely located under the shade of a big tree with a vista view from the hill-top. We stuffed ourselves… as usual of course, and finished the rest of the trail with a finger snap.

Speaking of picnic, the original idea of the whole March and Munch is to enjoy some refreshments after a strenuous hike. The food is preferably homemade, but this concept was gradually putting a lot of pressure on group members. We were losing ideas of what to bring week after week, since there are limited kinds of food that could stand for quite long time in our backpacks. I don’t like to make rules of the food and I don’t like to feel intimidated. Anything works, as long as you like it then share, whether it’s homemade or store-bought.
