Alviso Slough Trail

Alviso Slough Trail


On Sunday D. and I spent some time in Alviso on the Alviso Slough Trail.  Here are some of the pics I took.


Salsify and wild mustard near the parking lot.







Someone has left an elaborate offering (or perhaps a shrine) near the trailhead.





A look at Salt Pond A12.





Gulls on one of the tiny islands in the salt pond.





There is so little breeze, the water is almost like glass.





A look at the trail.  It is almost too bumpy for a wheelchair.  I got jounced around quite a lot.





Bermuda buttercups make a bright yellow splash.





On the other side of the levee, a motorboat heads up the Guadalupe River toward Alviso Marina.





Another huge stand of Bermuda buttercups beside the trail.





A United Boeing 737 takes off from nearby San José International Airport.





Fiddleneck.





A yellowlegs probes in the mud for little things to eat.





Another look at the mirror-flat salt pond.





Wild radish.
