exploring Huckleberry park

Tucked away in the Oakland hills between the bigger and better-known Sibley and Redwood Regional Parks is a small green gem, Huckleberry Botanic Regional Preserve. I've lost track of the number of times I've been there and how many photos I've taken.

But when it came time to create an Oakland Wiki page for it, I could only find a few, including this photo of wintering ladybugs that I shot on film(!) back in 2001. So yesterday I took advantage of the overcast skies to get some photos appropriate for showing it off. The park has a heavy tree canopy, so it's easier to shoot on an overcast day without bright patches of sunlight poking through.

Rather than repeat what I've written, you can read about it the Oakland Wiki page for Huckleberry. A few photos from yesterday are there, and there are lots more below. Some interesting piece about Huckleberry I've neglected? You can edit the Oakland Wiki, too!

Lots more photos from Huckleberry:
