I find joy in... leaving work early to go for a hike, having a hiking buddy, wildflowers, sunshine, being alive.

Today, I was able to leave work a little early (which never happens), so I decided to go on a hike. The sun was shining, the wildflowers were out, the people were friendly, I had a great companion, and I was happy just to be there.
Loved the wildflowers so much today.
Hiking buddies.
Working our way up the mountain.
Sometimes it's good to stop and smell the flowers.

Cowles Mountain is one of the hikes that I do most often in San Diego, because it is relatively close to home and it can be done quickly, but it's still a good work out because it is a decent elevation gain. Plus, it is the highest point in the city of San Diego and offers a nice 360 degree view from the top. The hike itself is about a 1000 foot elevation gain in 1.5 miles to the top (so it's 3 miles round trip).

What a lovely day.
