North Berkeley BART Station to the Orinda BART Station: 26 March 2015

It was a glorious day in the Bay Area. The temperature in Berkeley was in the low 80s, and the sky was clear. Donna joined me on this ramble. We walked through the University of California campus. It is now Spring Break, and there were few people on campus. We then cranked up the Berkeley Hills, and after catching our breath, we dropped down the east side of the Berkeley Hills concluding the ramble at the Orinda BART Station... lovely.




The route of the 26 March ramble. The approximate distance traveled as tracked by GPS was 9.6 miles. The approximate cumulative elevation gain was 1,951 feet. Mile markers are shown on the route’s track.

This healthy cow looked very protective about something. What could it be?
Yes indeed, she was protecting her newborn calf. My guess is that the calf is about a month old.
Two Cal students, both from South Korea, joined us on this ramble.
