The Far Side

The Far Side

For lack of a better than, I’m calling this spot ‘The Far Side,’ due to the fact that it’s technically the far side of a spot we had done earlier. We had never gone far enough to find this place … Continue reading

Crawdad Creek

Crawdad Creek

Though I’ve seen crawdads swimming around while lurking creeks, this is the first time I’ve actually seen them walking around outside of the water. I pet one and he adorably put his claws up. I’m not sure it’s wise to … Continue reading

Green Beams

Green Beams

Not much at this spot, but I liked the atmosphere under this creek bridge.

Fallen Giant

Fallen Giant

This tunnel at one time was an epic underground art gallery, but I was late to the game on this one and missed it. The city came through and buffed the whole thing – apparently this creek is extremely dangerous … Continue reading

Bat Tunnel

Bat Tunnel

Not the bat cave, but close enough. My friend told me he saw bats here last time and we made it over half way through and I was getting skeptical. Finally I noticed a dark, awkwardly flying, creature soaring low … Continue reading

Found Galdo!

Found Galdo!

A few months ago, Girafa tempted his followers with an Instagram post, asking WHERE’S GALDO?   Girafa hid a “Galdo,” character in some creek, using his new style of combining classic toons with his iconic Giraffe. In this case, Where’s … Continue reading

Yet Another Creek (Worth it)

Yet Another Creek (Worth it)

By the time we reached this creek, it had already been a long day and our feet were killing us. But one more to go, and a few hours of day light left. Time to kill it. Luckily it payed … Continue reading

The Drop Down

The Drop Down

We almost walked the length of this creek twice – from surface streets – before we actually entered. This urban-canal is far from being a nature stroll, it’s concrete for it’s entire length, and well fenced off. Eventually we gave … Continue reading

Orgy Tunnel

Orgy Tunnel (of love)

I had no idea of this tunnels existence with the exception of one sexy piece by Beavis – the letters are made of people in an orgy. After having visited, this tunnel is one of my favorites, just for it’s … Continue reading

Creek and Wall

Creek and Wall

We started this spot by following a long freeway wall, which eventually merged into a creek with a handful of underpasses. Though each underpass could be considered a spot in it’s own right, I combined them into one creek for … Continue reading

Serpent CCTV

Serpent CCTV

Sometimes it’s really difficult to track down a certain graffiti piece. I had only seen one or two shots of this CCTV on the Internet. But it’s not surprising why. When I arrived at the location, I was shocked about … Continue reading

Tongue Twister Creek

Rainbow Walls

This creek has a Spanish name that may throw you off the first time you try to read it, so I call it tongue twister creek. We decided to pick a creek this day and walk as much of it … Continue reading

East Bay Creek

East Bay Creek

Got up bright and early, and hit this creek up literally at the break of dawn. Though it was mostly whack, there were some nice gems to be found.

Chandelier Tunnel

Chandelier Tunnel

To distinguish this arched tunnel, I call it the “Chandelier Tunnel.” About half way through this looonng tunnel, is a Chandelier someone has mounted on the ceiling. There was a lot of well done graffiti here, but without a proper … Continue reading

Long Creek is Long

Long Creek is Long

This drain water creek spans about 3 to 4 miles. Since it requires rain boots, it’s a tedious walk round trip, but worth it for some of the amazing graffiti down there including Charles crew and Maska.

East Bay Mini Creek

East Bay Mini Creek

We spotted this graffiti coated concrete creek from satellite view, and decided to check it out.

Stairs Bridge

Stairs Bridge

Whether intentional or not, this train had some sort of stair case which gave the place a very cozy, picturesque feeling. If I lived in the area, I’d spend more time down there. While we were there, a couple fish … Continue reading

Yup; an SJ Bridge

Yup; An SJ Bridge

I actually liked this SJ bridge. The bridge had just a mild creek under it, with stepping stones set up by homeless across it. It was very zen like, the air was cool, and the homeless had a fire going … Continue reading

Under the Royal Road

Under the Royal Road

This was a cozy little yard under a major Bay Area road, featuring CCTV, Jist, among others.

Three Canals

Three Canals

This is a weird little storm drain oddity. A local storm drain was split into three separate channels, that the Bay Area’s best graffiti artists decided to turn into a rather epic street-art gallery.
