Cañada del Oro Wildflowers, Geocache Quached

Finally got up to Cañada del Oro, my favorite favorite place to bum around, last Saturday, to see the wildflowers. Though this is the most reliable place I know of in the San Ho area to see an astounding variety of wildflowers, I was somewhat nervous to see Indian Paintbrushes before the heat gets them. Saw this cool turkey on the way in, but I had to shoot the photo into the sun…

Shitty digital Canon Elph lens was NOT cooperating to catch these blue dicks! You can eat them… IMG_2435

Shooting stars in the daytime!

Finally the Indian Paintbrush showed up. I’m pretty sure the one below with the serrated leaves is also a kind of paintbrush, but someone can comment and fill me in.

IMG_2439IMG_2438Finally, I nabbed a bit of geocached plastic pollution! It’s been signed and stamped and commented upon by such as Mia Quiche, Fleetwood 7 and others. I took that shit back to the city and recycled it. Fuck your plastic geo-trash, Fleetwood 7!

SV Bike Fest ’16

Did we all bike to work on the 12th to prepare for Bike Fest ’16? Of course not, dipshit, you drove like you do every day. Aren’t you embarrassed? If I had the same executive position at Cisco for the past fucking ten years like you, I think I’d have learned to not sit on highway 87 by now. For an hour, which is the same as sitting on the light rail for some parts. Anyway, that’s just me.

Went to the History Park in central San Ho to see SV Bike Fest ’16 and took some pictures of just a few of the bicycles. Sorry bikers, this was not a motorcycle show! But take a look anyway. Captions tell the stories of some bikes.

Santa Clara Valley Brewing donated the money from beer sales to the Fest. VTA was there too, to get people to come to transit meetings so we can propose that they spread their upcoming budget better between freeways (which we know are a lost cause) and bike/pedestrian improvements (which are proven improvements).

Some merchants were selling soap and stuff too, and there was also a guy from the Tour de Coop, who are combining bike touring with people’s urban gardens. Is that a sweet idea or what?? It’s September 17, and already on September 18 is the return of the righteous Viva Calle.

Also saw Our City Forest, of course the SVBC and some taco trucks. We neglected to take pictures of the shenanigans on the half pipes. Be there next year!
