Campfires at the East Bay Regional Parks

Last weekend, we went to two very different parks in the East Bay Regional Park system.  We also participated in two very different sets of campfire activities.  Both were a lot of fun!

On Saturday night, we went to the Anthony Chabot campground for an evening campfire.  The campfire is held at an ampetheater situated high above Lake Chabot.  It is about a 20-minute drive above Highway 13.

The campfire started at dusk.  Park rangers made a presentation about bears.  Among other things, we learned about differences between brown and black bears.  "Smokey the Bear" also made an appearance.
