On a warm and clear Sunday we head up Skyline Blvd toward Windy Hill Open Space Preserve just outside (and up the hill) from Portola Valley.

We hike the Annivesary Trail to the top of Windy Hill and the other peaks nearby. There were trails to the various peaks which afforded slighly different views of the mid peninsula hill side. From the top we can see across the bay toward Mount Diablo. Both the San Mateo and Dumbarton Bridge are clearly visible, as is the Stanford Dish (radar dish).

The top of Windy Hill is roughly 1800 feet above sea level. It was definitely much warmer than the time we hiked here last January (very cold then).
