Subject: A Contrast of Temperatures
From: John Bondon
From sub-freezing temperatures to tank top weather, today's hike reports from the past week show the extreme contrast in temperatures we have been experiencing recently.
Andrew says of last Saturday's Briones Reservoir Loop hike:
Yes, that Bondon guy has been away from the trails for too long. But he shall return next month for another Decadent Hike! Details coming next month. In addition to Andrew's comments above, Morris shared this email with the Member's Only Email List as well:
The barge with the solar panels is for pumping water up to cattle troughs. The foam at that trough happens every year because the water is runoff from Bear Creek Road. The water quality folks have checked it in the past and werent concerned about it as far as water quality in Briones Reservoir is concerned.
We are having a trail building volunteer day coming up on March 19th, working on the trail re-route on the BART in Pinole valley. The Trail Dogs are going to be there. Well meet at the corner of Pereira Rd. and Alhambra Valley Rd. at 9. Bring tools, gloves and lunch. We plan to work until 3 PM.
Thanks for sharing that info, Morris! For anyone interested in helping out with this trail building event, you can find a link to the Bay Area Ridge Trail website on the East Bay Trail Dogs website at: http://eastbaytraildogs.org/PinoleWatershedMar19.html .
