Bear Creek Trail to Dam and Back | Briones Reservoir

July 27, 2014
Contra Costa County
Hikers: Cathy, Laura, Carol
Distance: 8.3 miles
Elevation Gain: 1,245 ft.

Still taking it easy after a 6 week hiatus.

Interesting cloud formation seen on our drive in. 

The reservoir is getting so low. The water used to come up to the grassy area. 

The "sticks" in the middle are water level gauges. Bone dry.

Here is a photo from July 2012. Not the same spot, but not too far from the others shown above.

 Kelley, if you are reading this, this is past the Bear Creek Trail. :)
