Redwood Regional Park (1/13/2017) - Oakland, CA

If you haven't heard the news, the San Francisco Bay Area has gotten hit with several mega storms during the month of January (and is still continuing in February). On 1/13/2017, I decided to take a trip to Redwood Regional Park in Oakland, CA to check out the storm damage. I took quite some photos while there and I am here to show you. I hope you enjoy. I also shot vlog on this trip, you can view it here.

A photo of Redwood Creek. As you can see the rain storm practically turned the creek into a river. This area used to be completely dry.

Recent rainstorms left many new streams flowing over Stream Trail. In the background is Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens).

The rainstorms also damaged the trails. Here is a warning sign set up on Stream Trail so people don't step on the part of the trail which is eroding away. In the background is Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens).

I saw a beam of light shining down through the forest canopy. I thought it would make a great photo. This is a photo of Stream Trail, Redwood Creek, and Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens).

More photos of the storm damage. A few Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) actually fell across the trail, and there was several overhead that was about to fall. I took a risk and decided to climb over the fallen trees to continue on my adventure. There wasn't too much to take photos of that day, so this is the last photo of my trip. Photo was shot on Stream Trail.
