Guadalupe Trail - Nov. 24, 2011

Walking Distance: 2.6 miles
Walking Time: 1 hr., 4 min. (4:04 - 5:08 p.m.)
Start and End Point: End of River Oaks Parkway (off N. 1st St.), San Jose, CA

It's always a good day to go walking, but it's even better to walk on holidays like Thanksgiving. After a nice big meal - I enjoyed catching a breathe of fresh air and working off some of the Thanksgiving Day feast. And I felt very thankful to be able to enjoy seeing the leaves turn colors -- bright yellows, reds, oranges, crimson pinks, and greens.

Today my short walk took me from the (red metal) bridge near the end of River Oaks Parkway, to within a mile or two of the San Jose International Airport (SJC).

And I took pictures of colored leaves....lots of pictures of leaves...

However, it was starting to get dark so the lack of light limited how many pictures I could take, and how far I could walk this afternoon. We're in the season of shorter, darker days -- by California standards that is.

Wildlife Sightings:
1 gray and white cat (feral/abandoned); 23 little brown jobs (LBJs); 38 ducks; 16 coots; 2 great egrets, 3 snowy egrets; 9 Canada geese; 1 mockingbird
