Our plein air painters group had planned a trip to Sunol Regional Wilderness on Saturday,
April 9th. But the weather turned wet and gray, so painting was out of the question. I decided to go anyway and seek out the falls along Alameda Creek, which is the main waterway for that part of the park.
The best are at a spot called "Little Yosemite," which is about a mile and a half from the nearest parking lot. Well worth the hike!
Above the falls runs a placid stretch of water, with very old native sycamores soaking their roots...a scene worthy of painting.
