Almaden Lake & Trails
This is a wonderful walk that is nearly on my doorstep. Almaden Lake itself, while a manmade lake, is a mecca for ducks, geese and egrets. It is skirted by the Los Alamitos Trail that continues past the lake paralleling the Los Alamitos Creek as it heads deeper into the Almaden Valley. Included at the end of this gallery are a couple shots from a connecting trail that actually leads to the back entrance of Santa Teresa County Park and some shots from a lake behind one of the offices of the San Jose Water Works that is next to Almaden Lake Park.
