I’m gratified to note that when the SFGATE website (that’s the San Francisco Chronicle) explained yesterday how El Cerrito got its name, the image they chose to represent the essence of our town was none other than the Hillside Natural Area! It’s wonderful
that the city is becoming associated in the wider public’s mind with this wilderness area, which Trail Trekkers will celebrate on May 21 during our fourth annual Hillside Festival.
Do not miss this event! We are putting together a great schedule now with hikes, talks, games and more for all ages.
Oh yeah, another reason I like the SFGATE photo — it shows my late and still beloved dog, Patchie, who served for years as Trail Trekkers’ mascot!
