Oakland, California 94607, United States

Created By: Wholly H2O


Here a gnome sits atop a tree along the Palo Seco trail of Sausal Creek. Visitors to the trail can spot several gnomes perched amidst the foliage. Back in 2013, thousands of painted gnomes became began popping up all over Oakland's telephone poles and traffic light controllers, becoming a local trope. The origins of these gnomes are unknown, but they add a bit of delight to this creekside walk.
