impromptu excursion - mt wanda

December 27, 2011
Martinez, CA
Hikers: Cathy, Laura
Distance: 4.7 miles

While hiking Mt. Wanda you will most certainly come across Mt. Helen; both being named after John Muir's daughters who hiked these hills with their father.

Mt. Wanda is beautiful even in winter.

Shorts and tanktop at the end of December!

Being goofy...

No outlet.

Acorn Woodpeckers stash acorns.



This was a very active beehive in June.
You can see what is probably a guard
bee to the right of the hole.
We love our fungi.

Mt. Diablo in the distance.

This area will be awesome after the rainy season.
This is two creekbeds coming together.

Pepé le Pew!

Trail ends...

Once again we must be trailblazers and
forge our own trail.
(God forbid should we turn around and go back!)

We could go that way...

You got the "thyme"?

Nasty stickers that really stick!
