Birding – Colusa National Wildlife Refuge

A red-tailed hawk swoops low, and 1,000 startled snow geese lift with a cacophony of honks and chatter.  They ascend in disarray, filling the sky.  Breathtaking chaos.  Then they gradually assemble, circle, and return to their vernal pond.

Winter is…

Kayak the Albion River

Kayaking up stream, the river stirs.  A harbor seal pokes his head above the surface and stares back at us.  Overhead, an osprey glides, searching for lunch.  Blue herons perch on limbs of firs, pines, and redwoods on the river banks.  We startle a cormorant.  Madly slapping the…

Tom, I did check out the site and really enjoyed seeing your daughter and am very impressed by the site. It would be fun to catch up with you and Heidi-

Tom:

Well, you have convinced me! We will do your Walkabout The Marin Coast - Marin Headlands to Point Reyes in March of 2009. I did purchase your "Walkabout" on the hike and wonder if you can tell me where I might find detail trail maps for this hike. Your map on page 2 is a good overview, but I would like more detail. Wonder if you can help?

Best regards,Mike Marti
