Coyote Creek Trail


On Sunday D. and I went to South San José to take a walk on the Coyote Creek Trail near Silicon Valley Blvd.  When we got there the creek was so dry from the on-going drought we were able to walk in the creek bed itself, and I took some pics.


The hills near the creek show burned areas from a recent fire.





The creek is so low we can walk in the dry creek bed.





A rusted pipe has been discarded near the creek bank.





The creek bed is littered with clam shells.





Cottonwoods line the creek and drop their yellow leaves into the creek bed.







A skunk skull in a meadow above the creek bank.





California aster floofs glow in the afternoon sun.





A holey rock.





The dried mud in the bed of the creek is cracked and dusty.





A castor bean plant grows in the creek bed.





Part of a toy castle lies in the creek bed.





A sycamore limb reaches over the creek.





Vertebrae lie among the stones in the creek bed.





Looking in the upstream direction.





A meadow alongside the creek bank.





A dried flower stalk is a reminder that summer is long gone.
