Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline

After hitting up the year-round farmer's market at Walnut Creek, we hustled to get on the trail before the eminent rain.

The radar @ weather.gov showed a cell over Briones so we went slightly north to Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline.

These pictures show the dry summer, but today it was lush green with rainbows in the nearby rain clouds. We found out it even hailed at home while we were gone!

Check out Bay Area Hiker for the best listing of trails w/photos.
