Hayward, CA

Hayward City Hall
This is the "old" City Hall.
I love the architechtural details and the Art Deco script.
The new City Hall is located in a "modern" skyscraper built when I was a teenager.
Once again not a cloud in sight....
This is our California sky on the first full day of Fall.
It was 85 degrees in Hayward....

Skywatch Friday, Death Valley


Approaching storm.
Looking across Death Valley from Badwater Basin.
It doesn't often rain in Death Valley, but I managed to visit when it did!
The wind was blowing up to 50mph across the dry lakebed. I couldn't hold the camera steady because of the gusty winds. The next night and the following day it rained in Death Valley and snowed in the surrounding mountains.
