It is very rare to see snow in the San Francisco Bay Area, but the weather recently has been very weird. It snowed like crazy in the San Francisco Bay Area. On February 23 and 24, 2023, my mom and I went to several locations in San Ramon, CA and Danville, CA to go see snow on Mt. Diablo, Mission Peak, Mt. Allison, and more. The places we visited are Forest Home Farms Historic Park (I went to this park mainly to see the sheep and use the bathroom 😅), Bishop Ranch Regional Preserve, Memorial Park, and Sycamore Valley Regional Preserve. I took photos with my cellphones and mirrorless camera. The photos are split into 3 blog posts. I hope you enjoy viewing my photos!

These are photos I shot on my Olympus mirrorless camera on Day 1 (February 23, 2023). The photos were shot at Bishop Ranch Regional Preserve in San Ramon, CA. There wasn't too much snow on Mt. Diablo on Day 1. I think the first round of snow and rainstorms mostly hit the peninsula and the south bay. We really didn't get much here in the Tri-Valley area. We were hit during the second round of snow and rainstorms. I mostly knew what I was getting myself into as I did some scouting around via online webcams (a list of websites at the end of this blog post if you're interested).
This is all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed viewing the photos! Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
