Martinez, CA
Hikers: Cathy, Laura
Distance: 4.54 miles

Our last hike of the year was a frosty one. Checking the weather on Yahoo! shortly before leaving read a chilly 35°.

While the car at our destination was a bit warmer - so it reads.

Hmmm what does not belong in a nature photo?

What makes the bubbles?

Tres Falls

That it was!

Dung beetle hot tub?

Beam me [down] Scotty!


Field of fungi.

The newts are still here!
We thought they hibernated.

The trail turned into a stream from the overflow of the upper pond.
