Upper Peirce Reservoir


By autumn


We went to the reservoir to see the monkeys. They were everywhere, that you gotta drive CAREFULLY, in order not to run them over.

Apologies for poor quality of the pictures. I was afraid to go near the monkeys especially when i have my 2 kids with me.

This picture, you see the monkey sitting ON the road

He’s looking so comfortable sitting on the road

Mother and child …

happy family …

I saw a plant i like, I wonder what its called …

water catchment area is looking calm and peaceful (just before the rain)

My previous visit to this place was 10 years (or more) ago. I certainly hope my next visit won’t be 10 years later.
