In December we went for hiking to Whiting Ranch, very close to our home. There are quite a few trails in there for mountain biking as well as walking. We followed the Red Rock Canyon Trail, it took probably 2 hours or so, but at the end of the trail, there was this gorgeous view and specially at sunset, the rocks were glowing! What a reward after hiking so much!! I took pictures and painted this from a picture I took up there.
