Del Valle Regional Park near Livermore

We haven't been hiking much in the East Bay, so I decided Del Valle near Livermore was to be our next hike. From reports, this place is pretty crowded in summer but there were very few people around in winter. Add to that a sunny day, and this was a really beautiful hike. We stuck to the fire road/trail going along the lake (which clearly had less water)

We also got to see three turkey vultures flying close overhead, which was quite cool (and a trifle creepy, since these are vultures after all).

We didn't see any fish, though we hung around the shoreline for a while - guess they were deeper in. On an additional positive note, Del Valle looks like a good place to rent kayaks, so we might go back for that.
