Guadalupe River Trail, SCVWD HQ to Blossom Hill Rd

Guadalupe River Trail, SCVWD HQ to Blossom Hill Rd


On Saturday D. and I walked part of the Guadalupe River Trail between the Santa Clara Valley Water District headquarters and the Blossom Hill Rd overpass.  Here are some of the pics I took.


At the riverbank.





A wiffle ball, washed up by the previous high water flow.





Looking upstream.





A coot amid reflections on the river.





Mallards on a weir.





A pied-billed grebe.





A coot.





A great blue heron perched in a tree.





This groundwater recharge basin behind the Santa Clara Valley Water District headquarters has only a few inches of water in it, due to the prolonged drought.





It's a sycamore sky.





Sycamore leaves glow in the winter sunlight.





A pair of mallards watches us from the river bank.





A shady spot on the river.





A difference of opinion regarding the clearance at the Blossom Hill Rd. overpass.





This mockingbird is perhaps waiting for others to assemble?





A great egret circles over a groundwater recharge pond.
