Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve

Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve


Here are pics from a visit to Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve on Monday.

A view southeast over the Santa Clara Valley.





Looking northeast along Sierra Road.





View from the Aquila Loop Trail.





The hills are tinder-dry with dead grasses.





California poppy.





More dry hills.





Clouds hover over the nearby ridge but drift along without any rain.





The trail winds through rolling hills.





Floof!







Looking north toward a hazy Mt. Diablo on the horizon.





A lone live oak stakes its place on the hillside like a sentinel.
