Nine hikers came on the Coyote Hills Regional Park hike led by geologist Warren
Nokleberg. We enjoyed perfect weather and the informative talk provided by
Warren, a retired professor and field geologist. We now know why there are hills
in a park next to San Francisco Bay, and which parts of Fremont may liquefy when
the next big earthquake hits. Unfortunately, Warren declined to predict when
that will be. After the hike over rolling hills, the Ramblers toured the
visitor's center which has exhibits about the approximately 13000 year history
and culture of the Native American Ohlone people and the wildlife of the area.
The long hikers circled the marshland inhabited by multiple bird species and
visited the butterfly garden.
