Dog Tales, aka Fall Hikes with Winston

As the Bay area’s version of early winter creeps in, days feel like crisp, sunny fall –almost Indian summer–back east. We’ve spent a lot of the weekend out walking with the dog at the Jackson Street dog park, the Ulistac Natural area off Lick Mill Road, the new Rivermark Village town center off Montague, where you can eat Baja Fresh tacos outside and look at the mountains while pondering if Silicon Valley needed 1900 new homes in this spot. We also went out into the wilds behind Williams Street Park, where they want to extend a trail under 280 and across the Valley.
Of course, this has put Winston into dog heaven, a universe accompanied by loud snores as he sleeps all the exerccise off.
