In a city of over 10 million people, it's reassuring to know that forests are not far away; perfect for a late afternoon (or morning) hike. The curvy pines along this path always intrigue me, the way the dappled light interplays with the irregular trunks.
In addition to the well-worn dirt paths, the mountain near our school also has some boardwalk paths. Hikers of all ages enjoy the forest's many paths, outdoor exercise equipment, and badminton courts.
After a hike up the hill, these hammocks were an inviting place to take a break.
What a great view from the hammock!
