It’s been a busy week and today I went to the opera (yes, opera) so no writing tonight. Instead here are some pictures of the flooding near my office. This is the Los Gatos Creek Trail that I often get to walk at lunch time. Normally this is a lazy creek about nine feet wide and maybe three to five feet deep. Here’s what it looked like last week:
The trail is wide to accommodate both walkers and bicycles. This part of the trail is prone to flooding in winter – the signs aren’t lying.
Here’s a picture of the trail and creek from a high spot on the detour (I’m about ten feet above the water here):
At this stage the
creek river is about 50 feet wide and I’d guess a good 20 feet deep in the middle. Given that there’s more rain due tomorrow, I won’t be walking this part of the trail until maybe April or May.
Till next week – stay dry,
