Sometimes the water isn't moving.
Coyote Hills and Alameda Creek
I've never seen so much water in 10 years of riding the area.
Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun
Here's the Los Gatos creek trail looking north towards Lark on Friday March 25.

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

Reason: double post
Almaden Reservoir, a LONG time ago...cafeteria tray sled+mossy concrete+dumb guys (me and my buds)+very wet winter=days of fun.
Conditions should be ripe this year for the similarly intellectually challenged.
Ha, ha... nice one Turd!!
Here's a couple more scenes from Vasona that my kid spliced together.

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...

Half the planet is deep into bloody tribal mayhem. We’re just riding bikes (and drinking beer) here.
I didn't get a very pretty shot, but...
Waterfall up Railroad Grade...

Falls near my house. A trail runs through the stream that ends in these falls. Nuff said
Nimubs Dam, last facility that checks the water on the American River before entering Sacramento Proper.
All 14 Gates are Open, first time in 5 years.

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.

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.
Let's see some shots from Chico and Paradise?
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.
