Flood damage along upper Coyote Creek

One day in mid-March we biked along Coyote Creek from Morgan Hill to the golf course about five miles to the north. We had observed the flood damage along the part of the creek that is closer to where we live, but this was the first we had seen the devastation along this stretch. We can only imagine how much time and money it will take to clear the creek bed of the debris, let alone clean up the urban damage further north.

On a more positive note, the lupines and poppies along the trail were beautiful!
