Fast Parkie

The rains had just stopped and there was enough time for a super fast parkie stroll yesterday. We had joined dad on a trip to the town of Los Gatos, where he used to live (before mom snagged him) to some appointments. Lots of car riding, so this was a treat.
The fall colors were all over...late day light...crisp air... We were exploring a small area of the 150 acre Vasona County Park.
We scooted around this parkie pretty quick, and with big smiles!
Below is the Oak Meadow area. Brilliant colors.
We stopped by the park train. Called the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad. Wootwoot!
Strolling throgh Pepper Tree Lane.
This parkie is on leash, and you'll see why.... a few pix below. I took a silly faces break :)
Ah. The light was growing low, but we could see still see this beautiful egret.
I was good. Watching quietly and keeping very still.
Giving me the look....that was a thank you look :)
And, off we went to more parkie....stopping for a quick surprise eyed snap.
Amazing skies above.
We caught up with more egrets enjoying their parkie time in the creek closer to Vasona Lake.
This park is home to many Great White Egrets and herons.
Those dramatic skies following us.
Our turn around point was at the end of this bridge.
As the park festive light sculptures were just being turned on.
And, back we flew....
Catching that light and wishing we had just a few more minutes.
We'll be back. Lots more to explore. Had to grab a stickie for my parting dash :)
We had a fantastic time here. Not so many folks out and about, beautiful autumn walk. Ah! Hope to make it back here, and also to catch up with a bloggy pal we realized is in the area...hmmmm mystery.
Have a great rest of the week friends :)

  5. You've got to get those exercise times in during the good weather! Also, I love that Sierra got a souvenir!
    Last night, I was thinking about you. I had the most beautiful "moonscape" and was reading my camera manual to try to get a good shot of it. I didn't get the shot because I didn't have time to find the tripod! The one picture I got, the moon looked like a glow stick. Anyway, I got to think about you all.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  16. You lucky girl, Sierra!! I love Vasona Park, a great place to walk and explore!
    Sorry we didn't get to meet up, my humans were running around crazy trying to get ready to go up to the mountains to visit Grandma and Grandpa!
    It snowed on us on the way!! Big huge flakes! Mom was so excited she took pics of them hitting the windshield! Wished we could have stopped to play in it!! Dad was nervous never driven in deep snow before!
    It was fun visiting but I'm happy to be home on MY couch and My bed again!
    Licks to you,
    Raider
