SOBRANTE RIDGE R.P.
January 27, 2011
Trail Description: We had taken an exploratory hike here two weeks earlier, and what a difference. Grasses were now greener and higher, the mud had dried, and some of the hacked trailside limbs were starting to sprout back.
All this made for a nicer foray to a new park for the CNPS of Napa.
