As previously blogged, last weekend Stephanie and I drove up to the San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge, located between Novato and Vallejo. I thought a hike there would be a welcome change from our usual height-seeking fare, especially considering that Stephanie is trying to reduce some knee strain.
There’s a parking lot for the trail to Tubbs Island just east of the intersection of CA-121 with CA-37, and the whole time we were there, we had the place to ourselves. We never saw another soul. The weather was a little windy early in the day, but it warmed up. And when we weren’t futzing with our sandals, the surrounding flat lands provided a nice backdrop for some landscape photography.
