We followed the track for a there-and-back walk of just under 5 miles. The track runs alongside the Carquinez Strait, but between 100 and 200 feet above sea level. This is near Martinez. We were rewarded with views of a ship being guided in by tugs, and trains on the railway line some way below us.

Quite late on, we realised it was peak time for the Perseids and Mount Diablo Astronomical Society had an event on Diablo, so we dashed east to see a fabulous sunset, but not many meteors.

Quite a day!
