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.
A clump of chanterelles on the opposite bank.
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.
