San Francisquito Creek

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.p1020010    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.
