Sonoma County's Santa Rosa at sunset from Hood Mountain
It's no Mt. Hood in Oregon, yet Sonoma's Hood Mountain is one of the area's best hikable mountains because of its views like this across Santa Rosa. The best view being a few miles into the park at Gunsight Rock, which on a clear day, visitors may be able to see the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco
. Wildlife I saw on this particular day included a couple different instances of seeing deer just a few yards from me.
