Sweeny Ridge

Hiked Sweeny Ridge with some friends today. We got a new telephoto lens this week - our old one has been broken since about April - which was great to test out. Fun to take photos of birds for a change. Also not much of interest in the plant world. Sweeny Ridge is interesting because you hike by the spot where the Portola Expedition discovered the SF Bay. I've been there before when it was totally socked in with fog (as it usually is) so there would be no Bay Discovering. But today was a gorgeous clear day and you could see as far as Mount Diablo without any trouble.
