Redwood Regional Park (1/17/2017) - Oakland, CA

I went up to a East Bay MUD Park at Valle Vista Staging Area in Moraga, CA and Redwood Regional Park in Oakland, CA on January 17th, 2017. My original plan was to hike only in the East Bay MUD Park that day, however that hike was cut short when I came across a giant tree that fell over and blocked the hiking trail. I ended up turning back and going to Redwood Regional Park. In this blog post, I will share with you the photos I took at Redwood Regional Park. I parked at Skyline Gate and all the photos in this blog post was taken on West Ridge Trail. I hope you enjoy these photos. I also shot vlog on this trip, you can view it here. If you are looking for my photos from the East Bay MUD Park, you can see them here.

It was a very smoggy day that day. That is why the visibility isn't so good in the photo.

Shadow Cliffs Regional Park - Pleasanton, CA (Cellphone Photos)

Today I took a walk though Shadow Cliffs Regional Park in Pleasanton, CA. I took some cellphone photos while there! In the blog post, I will show you the lake and creek which has risen a lot due to the recent San Francisco Bay Area mega storms. There are some flooding going on, and the creek looks like a river.

A row of American White Pelicans (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos). 

 As you can see, the lake has risen a lot. A sign and trash bin is now partially underwater. I wonder how many people will attempt to play basketball with their trash. :P

A photo of a wilderness photographer. I thought he made quite a nice composition for a shot. You can also see a park bench underwater due to the amount the lake rose.
