San Francisquito Creek is the border between San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Long ago it was the border between the lands of Mission San Francisco and Mission Santa Clara. It’s mostly dry this time of year, so I scrambled down the bank and took a stroll. Saw someone’s private bridge. Relatively recently built, it seems unused. I think they have their gardeners blow the leaves off it.
It’s well constructed, built on the site of a previous, similar bridge.
An old shed.
Lots of golf balls in the creek, presumably washed down from Stanford golf course.
University Avenue bridge.
Graffiti in the creek.
If these bedsprings could talk, oh what a tale they would tell.
Ancient engine block.
