    Sorry, it will be a very long drive for me and I am not up for it tomorrow. Looks good but I was hoping for something nearer. Hopefully I will get to paint there some other time.

    This is so close to my house! It is a very nice park, lots of wildlife and trees, and tons of blackberries to pick. There is a beautiful vista point only 5-10 minute walk from the parking lot, and not too hard of a climb, very worth taking in the view if you go. I have been sick, but will try to get there tomorrow.

    I am so glad you mentioned the car races along 37! I live in Vallejo and will avoid that mess. Been caught in that nightmare before.
