NOTE: This will probably be my last hike for the year, as I will be out of town during the month of December.
NOTE: A 4 mile, easy hike with ~600' of elevetion gain There is another 2+ mile hike that is actually tougher than the 4 miler we could do, if there is any interest.
NOTE: Meet at the bathrooms adjacent to the parking lot. I'll be wearing a purple shirt.
NOTE: We do not carry cell phones, so we cannot provide assistance sunday morning. If anyone needs assistance prior to that, use my email address or phone 925-484-4205. Right now the forecast is good, but if it changes and we have to cancel I will contact you by 5:00 PM saturday. This is a very low probability because you can do this hike in a light rain.

NOTE: The last ferry leaves Angel Island at 5 PM but I think we should shoot for the 4 PM one. That means if we catch the 10 AM ferry to Angel Island we will be hiking, eating and chatting from 10:30 to 4 or about 5 and 1/2 hours. My friend, Harold, will be leading this hike and knows a lot of the history of Angel Island.
