Los Gatos Creek Park, California

Green Blue Green Line

Another day we drove up to Los Gatos Creek Park. The Los Gatos Creek cuts through some interesting rock formations.
We saw several ground squirrels and looked for fossils in the creek. There were some pretty little flowers I don't
recall ever seeing before. On the way back to Coalinga we saw several birds and interesting rocky hills.
We also drove down S. Derrick Blvd. where there are hundreds of derricks pumping oil.
