Coppertone and I did another short hike at Sonoma Valley Regional Park with the Sonoma Activity Group and continued on into Glen Ellen afterwards for some drinks and conversation at the Wolf House.

The lake was notieably lower given the high temperatures and little rain as of late.  For the second time in a row when visiting we found young folks hopping the gate saying do not enter to go out onto the walkway leading out over the water.

Our previous visit to the Wolf House was not quite as pleasant given the mosquitos along the the creek, but tonight there no bugs and very pleasant weather.

Day Hikes Around Sonoma County is a collection of 125 of the county's best day hikes, providing access to both well-known and out-of-the-way greenspace. Hikes are found along the Pacific Ocean, across the coastal ridges, into wide valleys, and through thick forests. A third of the hikes are located along the coastline, accessed by Highway 1, which connects the coastal towns as it snakes along the oceanfront cliffs and bluffs. Many coastal access points that are not easily recognized from Highway 1 are clearly described. The remaining hikes explore the inland mountains, hillsides, and valleys through numerous state parks, regional parks, and undeveloped land. Highlights include fog-shrouded redwood forests, creekside canyons, wildlife sanctuaries, lakes, tidal bays, wave-pounded coastline, and sweeping panoramic views. A wide range of hikes accommodates amateur to avid hikers, from beachfront strolls to canyon treks. Straight-forward directions and clear maps accompany all hikes. A thorough index includes cities, trails, and points of interest.
