San Ramon Valley

San Ramon (11/22/21) Salil Bhatt

Danville is the neighbor who hangs his holiday lights early in the month. San Ramon waits until Thanksgiving Day.

Salil Bhatt took a Thanksgiving Day hike through the Sunol Regional Wilderness and found decorations still hanging from many of the wilderness’ native trees.

Most of the color is found in East Bay drainages and canyons where western sycamore, valley and blue oak, bigleaf maple, white

alder, creek dogwood and black walnut reside. Of these, Salil noted , only the sycamore, cottonwood and a few maple remain decorated.

Whereas in nearby San Ramon a riot of pink, scarlet and gold decorates the town, as exotic trees (principally red maple) and native cottonwood haven’t yet gotten the word that autumn decorations are being taken down elsewhere throughout the East Bay.
