Sunrise, San Pablo Bay

I chose this location based on 2 factors: I wanted to explore the San Pablo Bay region, and I wanted to see some snakes - the iNat observations search indicated that at least a few snakes had been seen in and around the Bel Marin Keys / Loma Verde Preserve area, so off I went. Bel Marin Keys turned out to be more of a vacation housing spot (at least in the area I was able to access), but Loma Verde was welcoming and sparsely populated at 6am.

The morning ended snakeless, but overall it was a lovely ridge walk with woodlands on one side and views of the bay on the other.
