The Luminous Los Trancos

Yesterday I went to meet my Argentinian mistress hiking in Los Trancos, one of the many preserves in the Open Space Preserve area. A scant 8 miles away from the HP headquarter on Page Mills road, the twisty road brings you to open sun and many hiking opportunities.

Hiking in California is different from a more humid climate (e.g. New England): the Sun seems stronger and the paths are dustier. Fortunately, much shady trails and luminous leaves await you when you go down the trails (in two hours, I visited two trails). The web gallery is here:

One of the trail is the San Andreas Fault trail, where evidence of the 1906 and 1989 Loma Prieta earthquakes still stands: (click for –More–)

The wooden poles with yellow bands mark the major fault line. You can see a diagonal starting with the front pole going off to the distance where two more poles are barely visible in the small web pic. The line runs roughly parallel to the trail on the upper left of the picture.
