Walks all over the Bay Area and Northern California

New Year’s Day: Hikes, nature events
in the Bay Area and beyond

By Lisa M. Krieger – Mercury News -Posted:   12/23/2013 03:00:00 PM PST | Updated:   4 days ago

January arrives with the force of a Chinook wind. One year is finished; its tiresome episodes are closed. Now there’s just the future, so full of promise, urging us to take a big mental and physical leap forward.

Stop — look. So much has happened while we were indoors celebrating. The days are lengthening. The night stars are wheeling around Polaris. Tall trees lay down another ring. Vast flocks of migrating birds cluster onto winter waters.

Pull on a sweatshirt and boots and join nature as she embarks on a new season. All over the Bay Area, there are Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 activities to get the blood stirring.


Going to be in Doncaster? Maybe not, but excellent goals.

Birder walks in New York City?


And after the walk on the first day – don’t forget to walk all the other days.

Happy New Year,
