The Thursday Picture – Vasona Lake

Vasona Lake and the Santa Cruz Mountains

Today’s Thursday picture is taken from the Los Gatos Creek Trail in Vasona Lake County Park. This is one of Silicon Valley’s scenic urban parks. Heavily used by bikers, hikers, walkers, and runners, the Los Gatos Creek Trail is a paved trail that wanders next to Los Gatos Creek past native oaks, residential neighborhoods, parkland, and small business. I like to take this trail when I need to rest my knees! Yes, it’s relatively flat and mostly shaded for those warm summer days.

From the Santa Clara County Parks website:
“The Los Gatos Creek is one of the few urban streams in Santa Clara Valley which remains relatively intact. It is both a riparian corridor for plants and wildlife and is part of an intricate system of water resources and flood protection.”

Where are you hiking today?

If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
