Evening hike on the peaceful trails of Indian Valley and Shell Ridge, enjoyed the sunset on the way back to the trailhead and saw some deers along the way.

Held my first Meetup here earlier today and had a blast! I mistakenly thought the hike was a 2.5 hour hike instead of an hour, so obviously we got done a lot earlier than planned. Some people did Trail Running while the rest of us talked and caught up. I would definitely reccomend this hike, unless you have a fear of cows. Lots of cows.
