Photographic Ode to the Los Gatos Creek Trail

It’s just a thin ribbon of asphalt running up from Los Gatos, winding through Campbell and San Jose for eight miles before ending abruptly in a random location in San Jose’s classy Willow Glen neighborhood. I spend of my mornings either leisurely striding upon it or pounding out mile after hard fought mile upon it, joining other runners, bikers, dog walkers and a few of the areas homeless in our morning rituals.  It’s a refuge from the South Bay’s urban landscape and a place for recreation. It’s also glorified drainage ditch and a patch work of civil engineering projects.  It’s peaceful, picturesque, gritty and industrial.  It’s the Los Creek Trail and I leave a piece of myself out there almost every day.
