briones reservoir: birthday hike

January 6, 2013
Contra Costa County
Hikers: Cathy, Laura, Noreen
Distance: 10 miles

Awesome day!


A muddy start..




..and it didn't get any better like we thought it would!












Beautiful lace lichen.

What is that up the hill and behind the tree?

Interesting to say the least!

Ha! Must be a geocaching.

Rowers - possibly St. Mary's team?





Noreen! Where are your feet?!!



Water trough? Why is there barbed wire just on the ends?













Deer trail. The deer tracks don't show in the pic.









This would make a great owl home if it isn't already occupied by one.





Looks dry. But it wasn't.








Sloshing through mud like this makes for a good workout.

























Oursan Trail to Bear Creek Road.
As you can see we cut our hike short - called for a ride back to the car. Thank you Guy!!!
