On Sunday I went to Roberts Park with a mind to take some photos and break in the new hiking shoes. I learned two things:
- I need higher socks than “anklet”, the shoes kick dirt up on the trail and give me a ring of dirt at and just inside my socks…
- I rarely want to take photos while hiking around.
That day, there was an interesting fog layer over the bay:
There is a nice vista point with a bench that has several peaks in it’s panoramic view. In this photo there is a peak above the bench, that is Mount Diablo:
If you look from this point, you can see Mt. Diablo fairly well:
Just to the left of the bench is an interesting marker, I’m not sure what it is pointing at:
There is another trail going to a nice picnic area with several tables, called “Diablo Vista”:
The sign has a plastic holder, because I believe you may reserve Diablo Vista as a venue! That’s cool. And it has a humorous side to it, as this is the “vista” they are referring to, Mt. Diablo in all it’s… branches?
I took the photo so I can share it with EBRPD, I’m sure they can arrange someone to go and remove the dead tree blocking the view.
Ya know, I walked all over that park, and hardly took any pics…
