We are lucky to have had time to get to know the trails around the preserve and to recognize some of the plants and birds which live here. In different seasons, in differing weather, it's always interesting. However, the view across the broad marsh here can be a little daunting. You might sympathize with those developers who felt the marsh was good for nothing unless drained and paved. Turn around: directly behind you is a dramatic view across the open water to the East Bay hills. Does that seem more worthwhile to you?
Cache is a small lock'n'lock, just out of sight. I weeded away the nearest thistles when I placed the cache (they're not native and not a protected species). The snake in the cache is a pen, please do not take it for a trade item unless you leave a pen or pencil.
