Comfort and Joy Outdoors

We’re grateful that the outdoors has remained an option for finding a little comfort and joy in 2020. Whether it’s a Merry Mask-mas, a hand-washing Hanukkah, or however you celebrate the season safely, we wish you good health and time in nature. Take a hike and say hi to some farm animals, find peace on a less traveled Mount Tam trail, and get a ray of light on an SF sunset hike.
