Shell Ridge Open Space

December 22, 2013
Walnut Creek, CA
Hikers: Cathy, Laura
Distance: 6.3 miles
Elevation Gain: 1,427 ft.

Notice the pretty piece of shell sticking out in the middle.

Shells everywhere! Hence the name Shell Ridge.

Here we go..

Coming back down. The trail got to be a bit precarious. We'll take the trail that was to the left..

We could really use some rain, not just in general, but to wash away all this ugly smog!

So nasty.

This view makes you feel like you are in a foreign land.

Almond tree.

Laura tried an almond; she said at first it was quite bitter, then it had a strong, fresh almond flavor.

So very young.
I remember hearing about their passing.


Fossil Hill, Kovar, Summit Ridge, Indian Creek, Briones to Mt. Diablo, Corral Springs, and Ridge Top, plus a few unnamed..
