San Rafael, Pickleweed Park - Feb. 22, 2010

Walking Distance: 2.2 miles (estimate)
Walking Time: 1 hr., 3 min. (4:42 - 5:55 p.m.)
Start and End Point: Canal St., near Pickleweed Park, Library, San Rafael, CA

I skipped ahead one segment and past San Quentin Prison; and I will loop back in that direction this week.

Late this afternoon, I made my way from Pickleweed Park, past Schoen Park, around the Lagoon, and Shoreline Park. Sunset and work back home cut this walk short.

There continued to be some great views of Mt. Tamalpais in the distance (see image at right); and I'm beginning to think that most of the Bay Trail in Marin County will have a view of Mt. Tam. Also pictured is a view out toward the Richmond bridge.

Wildlife Sightings:
9 Canada geese; 8 sea gulls; 50 ducks; cloud of gnats; 1 hawk or falcon (making noises, way up on tower); 2 Western or Clark's grebes; 2 black oystercatchers; 2 crows; dogs and people walking.
