Briones Overlook Staging Area - Part 1 (EBMUD Park) - Orinda, CA

I went up to a East Bay MUD Park at Briones Overlook Staging Area on May 28, 2016 to take photos. After visiting the East Bay MUD Park at Valle Vista Staging Area in Moraga, CA (you can view my photos from that park here), I visited Briones Overlook Staging Area. At this park, I took scenery photos, wildlife photos, and many sunset photos. I am here to share with you the photos I took in the park. Since I took many photos, I am splitting the photos into 3 blog posts. I hope you enjoy these photos.

The photos for today will be scenery photos from the park, scenery photos of Briones Reservoir, and bird photos.

A photo of high voltage power lines running through the park. I took a photo of them because I think having the tower split the image in half would look awesome.
