Andrew reports of today's Lime Ridge (Arbolado Park) hike "We had 5 hikers today. One girl and four boys. What more could a girl ask for. The comversation was very entertaining. At times, hilarious. A glorious day. The vegetation growth on the north side of the hill is astounding. Grass is a foot high, mixed with lot's of miners lettuce. It was a fun day. ".

A report of last weekend's hike will follow in my email report next week. :)

paul leads our next scheduled hike and says of the upcoming Mitchell canyon to deer flat hike (Mountainare Pkwy) hike on Saturday, March 21 at 11:00 AM: " Come celebrate the vernal equinox and spring with a hike along Mitchell creek and up Mitchell canyon to Dear flat. We might see a nymph or gnome, or at least some wonderful views and if we get lucky a great display of wild flowers. If the timing is right Mt. Diablo is home to some of the best wildflower displays in Northern California. ".

You'll find more details about each of these upcoming hikes, including starting time and directions to the trailhead, posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website. In the event of rain, please check with the hike leader as to whether the hike will proceed as planned.

Happy Trails! :)

Happy Trails,
