Alviso lies at the extreme southern end of the San Francisco Bay. An old fishing cannery and delapidated buildings, including an old grocery store tell their stories of a once-thriving trade.

There are also old sediment ponds and brackish backwater sloughs keep some people at bay because of their horrible smells. They are a reminder that we need to clean up our polluted environment and constantly be aware of present violations.

The Don Edwards Wildlife Preserve is a few miles north of Alviso. There was a Boy Scout lecture going on while we visited. This refuge is home to many migrating birds and a great place to bring your 1000mm lens for those prize winning photos.
