    Some flooding of the path. I passed by twice; in a couple hours the water level had risen significantly.

    Even the ocean is gnarly, and Pilarcitos creek is quite full. Usually it's just a big puddle on the beach. Now it's actually connecting up with the ocean...

    From beginning of March

    Excellent idea for a thread (when all you have is lemons...)

    Back on March 1st, I was cycling down in Gilroy and Morgan Hill and rode by Anderson Lake. There hadn't been much rain but they were letting a lot of water out the reservoir (because of earthquake concerns it is capped at 54%). The iphone video doesn't really do it justice but this wall of water was about 10-15' high.

    <iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/w57O9_vA7UE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    The spray was cool on a warmish day. The worst part was that the Coyote Creek Trail was flooded in several spots, only a few of which were safe to ride through. We had to find street detours. I expect that trail is going to be a mess until the water level gets down and rain stops for good.

    All the rain means the little creeks and falls in China Camp are flowing. My favorite is this one:

    Happened to pass by Anderson Lake again last weekend and the water is still flowing. We were climbing up E Dunne to Coe HQ so got a good look at the water levels - if the goal is max 54%, they'll be purging for a while... it's quite full.

    Does trail work for 3 hours while it dumped about 3" count? The deluge in central coastal CA last December.




    A little excitement from the water.

    Here's a video from the beginning of this year. It was too wet to ride and bikes would be luggage for this terrain, so it's was a hike. The destination is one of the bigger falls in Coe, if not the biggest. It's not on any trail and not frequently visited, although it is surprisingly close to the entrance. There's some minor creek crossing drama near the end of the clip.
