Lake Chabot Regional Park - Castro Valley, CA (Part 1)

From 7/16/2016 to 7/28/2016, I hit up three separate East Bay Regional Parks here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I visited Redwood Regional Park in Oakland, CA, Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont, CA, and Lake Chabot Regional Park in Castro Valley, CA. I have an annual pass this year, so I do plan on taking more photography trips to these parks. I want to exercise and get fit so I can do a camping trip up in the Sierras here in California sometime. I've been thinking about a trip like that for a while now. Not to mention, I really need to loose some weight. Enough about me though, I am here to share the photos I took at the parks with you guys. I will be splitting the photos into several parts. I also shot video on my East Bay Park trips. You can view my vlog with the videos here. I hope you enjoy.
