Hidden Gem in the East Bay

After parking in front of Shahin’s Cousin Arman’s house for a couple weeks, we decided it would be nice for everyone if we got out of town for a bit. We found a park in Livermore that looked nice so we made reservations for 5 days at Del Valle Regional Park. The drive there was…

Adventures in Albuquerque (part deux)
