Friday: (11/06) Granola and diced apple for breakfast. I drove up to Belmont to Hidden Valley Open Space and Waterdog Lake Park. It was a 7.1 mile city-like hike. It was in open space but there were houses on the ridges and valley bottoms. The trail ramble up and down through the hills ending up at Dog Lake. I enjoyed my lunch of a ham and cheese sandwich with a sliced apple then hiked back. On the way home I stopped at Smart And Final market for a couple of things. Leftover soup and toast for dinner.
