Full Moon Mt. Wanda Walk was a blog written for Diablo Magazine.
Spend a summer night under the full moon in Martinez for Contra Costa County views at dusk.
Martinez may not seem like the likeliest of places to find a clear view of the full moon, but the John Muir National Historic Site makes it easy to look past the industrialization and feel like you’re getting away from it all. Happy with the chance to spend some time outside, my boyfriend and I arrived at the base of Mt. Wanda with comfy shoes, a bottle of water, and not much else. We met upwards of 100 others, all ready for the evening stroll. Some had full-on hiking gear and walking sticks, while others sported blue jeans and T-shirts.
