Hamilton Parkway, Park, Novato - March 19, 2014

Walking Distance: 1.1 miles (estimate)
Walking Time: 1 hr., 4 min. (4:51 - 5:55 p.m.)
Start and End Point: small parking lot off Hamilton Pkwy., Novato, CA

The Old Hamilton Air Force Base closed many years ago. The large hangars that once sheltered planes now house businesses in this mixed use community. Today's walk took us up and over a hill with a view of this area, now part of Novato.

We started at a small parking lot off Hamilton Parkway, at the foot of hill. We walked up the trail which curved back and forth up the hill. It felt like Spring. We did have to make one stop—for a rope swing tied to a large tree. (We stopped to swing on the way back and swinging was delightful. I hope it's still there.)

We continued to walk uphill to a vista area. This vantage point afforded some nice views of the marsh/wetlands areas that have been partially restored.

I walked downhill (past a cat hiding in green grass and old fennel stems), to the point where I'd left off last weekend, then walked back up the hill. I then re-joined my friend Elise and we walked back up over the top, then downhill back to the car.

Thank you Elise!

Wildlife Sightings:
