McClellan Ranch Preserve


On Saturday D. and I visited McClellan Ranch Preserve (a former horse ranch from the 1930s featuring a nature museum, community garden and historic buildings), where we visited its Junior Nature Museum and walked the nature trail alongside Stevens Creek.  Here are some of the pics I took.


Colorful buckets outside the Junior Nature Museum.






Inside the Junior Nature Museum we see a cattle skull wearing a cozy scarf, a bearded dragon and a collection of skulls and bones.










Outside on the nature trail next to Stevens Creek, we find a cryptic note on the banks and an offering of flowers in the water.








Bare sycamore branches sprawl overhead.








Stevens Creek.






A sweet gum leaf glows in the afternoon sunshine.






The woods next to the creek.






Another look at Stevens Creek.






Interesting things overhead: a raven perched on a sycamore branch, and the moon and a contrail.








Cottonwoods are brilliant yellow.






One last look at Stevens Creek before we go back home.
