Scenes from an Almaden Quicksilver Trail Run

I have previously extolled the virtues of Almaden Quicksilver County Park. Today it was the source of sanity after a couple of long and busy work weeks. I’ve been working from home all week due to very early morning phone calls followed by a lot of heads-down work, so by this morning I was suffering from serious cabin fever. Fortunately, today was finally a day to take a breath and I found myself with the freedom to pop out for a trail run. Naturally, I chose my closest park with the best (no poison oak) trails for running. It was a gorgeous day, and despite only carrying my iPhone I still managed to snap a bunch of pictures capturing the beautiful sky and views. Enjoy!

    Aww, my hometown! I ran down there last Christmas and gummed up my trail shoes, too. Man, I miss the bay.

      Yeah, it’s a pretty cool spot to have nearby. I’m always amazed at how empty it is, considering how close it is to the country’s 10th largest city. Plus, all that interesting history stuff.

    photos. I didn’t know any phone camera could focus so brilliantly on flowers
