Hiatus no more

Alviso Outing

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

On a fine, sunny Saturday in early spring Wayne and I decided we should hike out to check on the Alviso weep site. We have been tracking this site for about a year now and it continues to impress with entertaing diversity over time and space. On this occasion we found the weep site in […]
