Enjoy the wildflowers on the trail. . .and identify them! The Hikers Gallery at the kiosk has the Spring/Summer wildflowers in bloom pictured with their names. Thank you Dan Noreen and Roy Tennant for putting up this display.
Before you hit the trail, check out the Hikers Gallery at the kiosk for gratitude quotes from Overlook Trail Hikers.
“What a way to top off a great trip to Sonoma, 25th anniversary!”
“Being in the moment with family & friends is pure love. Nature is a part of our soul.”
“What you see is what you get. And what you get is awesome.”
“My husband and I both survived traumatic health issues. Coming to the lookout is the best way for
us to celebrate and conquer.”
You, Overlook Hikers, have been writing in the Hikers Notebooks for nearly 20 years! Go to our past blogs for more Gratitude quotes that Roy has posted from the Hikers Notebooks.
And while you are at the top, write YOUR thoughts in the notebook. . . .It’s on the stone bench at the top of the trail.
Come out and help the Sonoma Ecology Center maintain the trails of Montini Preserve with the restoration team. Bring gloves, hat, and water that you can carry hands-free (i.e. bring a backpack). Wear long pants, boots or sturdy shoes and sunscreen. Poison oak is present, so long sleeves are suggested. We have tools and trained staff with tasks for all. Those under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult. We will provide tools and refreshments for volunteers.
No RSVP required. Meeting at 4th Street Kissing Gate (cross-street is Haraszthy) at 9:30am on Oct. 12th.
