To burn off some of the Thanksgiving dinner calories, my whole family (mom, dad, wife, brother, sister-in-law, and dog) went hiking today at Wildwood Park in Thousand Oaks. My dad wanted to go there since we used to go there when my brother and I were kids and none of us had been there in a while.
We parked at the park entrance where Avenida de los Arboles dead ends and walked all the way to the giant teepee and then over to Paradise Falls.
Along the way, we searched for the Indian Winter geocache along the Santa Rosa Trail, but could not find it. We didn't attempt to find any others because my brother and his wife weren't very interested in geocaching.
We followed a different route on the way back following Indian Creek Trail back up to Avenida de los Arboles. The way back was mostly uphill and my mom had a hard time making it up the trail. We saw a snake cross the trail in front of us which freaked my mom out.
It was a really nice day for a hike. It was warm, not windy, and many of the trees were turning their fall colors. We stopped at Boba Loca on the way home for Boba drinks and then returned home to prepare a dinner of Thanksgiving leftovers.
