California State Parks docent Randy Bello leads an intrepid group of hikers Wednesday on a rainy tour of the Bluff Trail at Montaña de Oro.

On the walk, the group saw hawks, egrets, seals and various flora. For information about hikes at the park and elsewhere, call 772-2694 or visit www.ccnha.org.

The forecast for today calls for partly cloudy skies with scattered showers, but the weather should then warm up, with clear skies and highs in the low 70s predicted this weekend.
