Los Alamitos Creek Trail


On Sunday, our first rain-free day in I'm not sure how long, D. and I took a little walk on the stretch of the Los Alamitos Creek Trail in San José between Almaden Lake and Cloverhill Dr, and I took some pics.

The previous night's raindrops still cling to the grass blades along the trail.





All the rain is making mushrooms sprout up.





A look down the embankment toward Los Alamitos Creek.





Madia flowers brighten up the embankment.







Teasel.





A clump of chanterelles on the opposite bank.





Looking upstream.





Galls cling to dormant oak branches.





A bee visits a dwarf lavender flower.





Down at the creek, a merganser is about to enter the water.





Looking downstream, and looking upstream.







Buds are about to pop.





Looking south along the trail.





What's a field trip without power lines?





An acorn woodpecker sits on a branch above the trail.





It's a sycamore sky.
