Windy day along the Eagle View trail

Windy day along the Eagle View trail

Sunol Regional Wilderness – Eagle View Trail

Made a quick visit to Sunol Regional Wilderness¬†this past Sunday to hike the Eagle View trail. We took the Welch Creek Road entrance and didn’t encounter a single car on the way up or down.

It was a windy Sunday: No doubt a precursor to the winds that fanned the smoke and flames the following day in Napa and Sonoma. Overrun with fallen branches, the trail was  difficult to follow at times.

This young gopher snake was sunning itself on the trail while traversing the ridge.
