On 17 January I hiked in CASTLE ROCK REGIONAL PARK. The park provides access to more than 18,000 acres of public land, and is part of the East Bay Regional Park District which is located in the eastern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area.

I recently acquired a CANON 20D DIGITAL SINGLE LENS REFLEX CAMERA, and I have been trying to master all of the options that the camera provides. It is a beautiful camera, although it is a tad too big to be carrying around on hikes. All of the below photographs were taken with the Canon 20D
