Visiting Middle Harbor Shoreline Park
Oakland, California
Monday, July 4, 2011

This land used to be military land, and there were a number of stone walls built on the property. After the land was turned into a public park, the stones in the walls were reused and reset by professional masons.

This walkway features rocks from various places in the San Francisco Bay Area and it serves as a great viewing point for photographers. It's also a nice place to watch the birds, including this flock of Canada geese.

Here's an article that Andrew posted about the geology of this walkway, including another view and several close-up images of individual rocks:
