The Bay Area has so many wonderful parks and natural places to visit that it’s sometimes hard to chose where we want to take a walk. We decided to stay close to home and try some local places we haven’t been before or for a long time. Last night we walked to the top of Mt. Wanda, part of the John Muir Historical Site property. It turned out to be a good workout and with wonderful, unexpected views. On one side we could see past the Benicia Bridge
and on the other, Mt. Diablo.
Tonight we went out to the foothills of Mt. Diablo to Borges Ranch for a more leisurely loop around the hills. On the way out we saw our first Tarantula of the season.
