Coyote Creek Hike
Montague Expwy & Seely Ave
Milpitas, California

By Peter Y. Chou

Preface: It was a warm sunny day on Christmas. My friend took me to Coyote Creek Trail that she has not hiked before at Montague Expressway & Seely Avenue in Milpitas. When we went by Creative Labs at 1901 McCarthy Boulevard, I was struck with awe by the company's logo— CREΛTIVE with A as Platonic Lambda Λ— "Soul of the Universe". Fortunately, the building was just a block away from our hike, so managed three nice photos of this logo (1, 2, 3). Other favorite photos of Christmas hike— Black Willow Tree by Creek, Sun through two Redwoods, Farm Post: Peace on Earth. We concluded our hike around 3:40 pm because of gravel on the Coyote Creek Trail, too bumpy for my friend's wheeled walker. There was a Farm Post by the Tsukuda Fruit Stand in Japanese and English: "May Peace Prevail On Earth". It echoed the passage in Luke 2.14"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." That was the angels singing when Christ was born, how fitting on this Christmas Day. Below are photos from Coyote Creek hike.
