Los Vaqueros Watershed - Contra Costa County, CA

On February 18th, 2019, I drove to Morgan Territory Regional Preserve for a hike through the preserve along with Los Vaqueros Watershed. I parked at Morgan Territory Road Staging Area. I'm telling you that so you can get a general idea of where I was in the preserve as it is huge. On my hike, I also got a small glimpse of the extremely rare San Francisco Bay Area. There is one photo of the snow in the blog posts. I hope you enjoy the photos.
