Carquinez Scenic Dr. - Jan. 9, '11

Walking Distance: 1.2 miles
Walking Time: 25 min. (3:40 - 4:05 p.m.)
Start and End Point: Parked on Carquinez Scenic Drive, Martinez, CA

It took me a while to find the start of Carquinez Scenic Drive (shown as double yellow line on left side of map) -- a winding road with views of the Carquinez Strait, Benicia, the Benicia-Martinez bridge, and downtown Martinez. The road runs West from the West end of downtown Martinez, and is well named.

The road passes by two cemeteries (that are fenced off from passerbys). And, if you'll look closely at the picture at right, you'll notice that the fencing did not stop a few deer from wandering through and paying their respects.

Wildlife Sightings:
1 mockingbird; 1 little brown job (LBJ); 1 domestic cat; 2 deer in cemetery.
