‘Küche’ = Kitchen
‘Kuchen’ = Cake
‘Kirsche’ = Cherry
‘Kirche’ = Church
If I can just master these 👆🏻 in the next six months and get the ‘ch’ and ‘kh’ right, I’ll consider it a win!
On one of the docent-led hikes, I learned that I need not rely on Google Maps for figuring out my route in the middle of a forest. Thanks to Marie-Anne Neimat, a docent, for introducing me to Avenza Maps (free) – a great app for hiking in the Bay Area Peninsula region. The app is available both for Android and iOS. The app uses the GPS on your phone to help you track your hiking route as well as tell you which trail you’re at.
Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District (MROSD) provides free GeoPDF maps for some of the preserves (look for Midpen Preserves (Bundle) in the app’s Store).
More information about the app is available on the MROSD website.
Okay, we’re now eight hikes old (as of September)! Yes, you’ll see blog posts for all those hikes shortly (hopefully).
Hike Date: June 26, 2015
(For my later hikes in Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve, see “Hike: PG&E – Wildcat – Coyote Loop Trail” and “Hike: Rogue Valley – Wildcat Loop – Upper High Meadow – Upper Wildcat Canyon“.)
I have for long been a member of various outdoor meetup groups but never really participated in any of the activities. But I did take one advantage of the membership without going for a meetup – the constant email notifications from the different groups kept me abreast of the trails people were heading out to from time to time.
