Las Trampas | EBMUD Watershed: Rocky Ridge Loop

November 10, 2013
Contra Costa County
Hikers: Cathy, Laura, Noreen
Distance: 6.72 miles
Elevation Gain: 2,136 ft

 Make sure to go, for the majority of the trails are in the wide open...

Oh, we (I) hate having to pass a baby and momma cow...

Steep (the photo just does not do it justice) and loose.

Bones, bones, everywhere!

Huge spine! Must be cow. :(

Ohhh, the cowhide. Must have been poached (livestock is considered theft, not poaching). I'm heartsick. So much for a protected area..

The bones were scattered all over the side of the hill and across the trail.

The hoof.

The bastards..

Again, the photo just does not show the depth. Almost a nipple scrapper. 

Ahh.. shade.

Move along little doggies cows.

These cows were in the pasture, if you can call it that - then they started running! Have not witnessed running cows. A bit unnerving.
