Lake Chabot Regional Park

I took a friend to Lake Chabot Regional Park a while back. Here are some photos from the trip. I didn't end up taking too many photos as it was too windy. Lake Chabot Regional Park is located in Castro Valley, California. If you are from the area, this park is a great exercise spot with lots of long trails! I hope you enjoy viewing these photos!

I meant to do the photos from my white water rafting trip today, but I ended up uploading these. >.< Sorry, been having a lot on my mind lately with school and stuff. School has been very stressful for me, which is why I ended up uploading the wrong photos after such a big delay in my posts. Oh well, please enjoy these, and I will upload those photos next time!

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. View my best photos from Lake Chabot Regional Park here. View all of my 2012 photos from Lake Chabot Regional Park here

Sticky Monkey Flower (Mimulus aurantiacus)

I'm not very sure on what flower this is. If anyone knows, please comment below!

California Towhee (Pipilo crissalis)

Wild blackberries in the park. This is a close up photo of its flower.

This is a close up photo of the blackberry. These berries are edible once it turns black or almost black. These berries in the photo is not very ripe yet. They taste very good! :) I've ate them before. Generally, in the wilderness, you should never eat any berries you don't recognize! They may be poisonous. These berries, I do recognize, told to me by a park ranger it's safe, and tried before so I know it's safe. 

I usually don't do portrait shots, but I thought the tree's shape looked really cool and shooting it in portrait was the only way to get the most out of it. 

Some landscape of the lake.

Another shot of the lake from a different part of the park. I got some lens flares in this one...

This is all the photos for today. Hopefully I don't forget again, in the next post, I will have more photos from my white water rafting trip! I hope you have enjoyed viewing these photos for today.
