Quick trip to the library — drop off and pick up. On the way home I stopped to capture some pictures of some of last night’s torrential rain (we got about 4 inches yesterday — most of it within a two hour period). This is a low water crossing on one of the back roads I ride to and from the library. This stream is a tributary to Walnut Creek. Looks like it flowed out of it’s banks by quite a bit last night. There is still significant flow even 12 hours after the rain stopped.
Lack of common sense…
…or lack of infrastructure? I noticed this guy walking along the tracks. I had seen him earlier on another street and wondered where he had disappeared to. Seems he decided to take a short cut as he was walking south. Taking the tracks reduces his walk by at least two miles. His other alternative is to walk along the road I was riding on. But it has not sidewalks, shoulders and a very narrow bridge. So I really can’t blame this guy much. Although the earbuds and iPod are probably a bad idea.

Another random bear sighting.
