Walk with Me: Fall Scenes in Anthony Chabot Regional Park, from the Brandon, Cascade, Columbine, and Grass Valley Trails

 

I love to hike! And fall is a beautiful time to do it…. though unfortunately, it also means I don’t get to go nearly as often. It gets dark so early now, I can’t make it up to the hills after work early enough to catch more than half an hour or so of daylight.

Last week, I spent a happy Saturday afternoon in Anthony Chabot Regional Park, which borders Oakland, Castro Valley, and San Leandro.
This time, I brought my camera (not a very good one, but it does the trick).

Here are some scenes I came across on my hike on the loop consisting of the Brandon, Cascade, Columbine, and Grass Valley trails. Next time, I’ll get there a little earlier so I can make it all the way to the lake.

So come with me as I walk along these trails!

It’s a beautiful park, with ever-changing scenery, as are so many of the wild places in the Bay Area: you often can go from shady redwood groves to grassland, from seaside to desert, from cliffs to cow pastures, in a matter of minutes.

Yet again, I have to say it: for sheer grandeur and variety of scenes of natural beauty, I’ve never seen or heard of a better place than California. Here’s just a little slice.
