Photographer's Note

This is an example of the dry terrain up on the Antioch Hills at Contra Loma Regional Park. The green trees are the California Oak. Some trees like these ones on the right dries up. Some just hibernate and turns green again at the first rainfall. Some cannot recover and finally die.

Contra Loma's 776 acres include an 80-acre reservoir for year-round fishing and a lifeguarded swim lagoon for summertime swimming. Enjoy these attractions along with year-round hiking, biking, and nature study at this Contra Costa County oasis.

PP Work: Adjust levels control; Adjust saturation; Sharpen; Crop; Reduce image size for upload.
