San Francisquito Creek Trail

San Francisquito Creek Trail

Here are a few pics from a visit on Sunday to the San Francisquito Creek Trail in the Baylands.

The trail skirts the edge of the Baylands Golf Links course.

A spur goes into the salt marsh at the edge of San Francisco Bay.

An American wigeon floats on the Bay.  Wigeons eat primarily aquatic and terrestrial plants.

Looking across San Francisco Bay from the end of the spur.

California buckwheat is a common native wildflower in this area.

A Clark's grebe swims down San Francisquito Creek in search of fish to eat.

The afternoon sun makes shadow patterns on the bridge over San Francisquito Creek.
