On Saturday D. and I visited the Juan Prado Mesa Preserve in Los Altos Hills, and I took a few pics.
We begin in the woods, on the Mary Stutz Path.
A spider rests in its web.
We see occasional manholes in the woods.
The grassy hillsides are tinder-dry.
Poison oak is turning color already.
We emerge from under the forest canopy to an open hillside.
A skull lies on the hillside.
The path winds above multi-million dollar homes built in an old quarry.
The other end of the Mary Stutz Path.
Centaury and a deer hoof.
Another manhole in the middle of the woods.
