Spending our time untethering the mind, getting the fidgets out, exploring the in-between ideas, and learning kintsugi.

Palo Alto Baylands, Jan 2023

Benches every quarter mile and plenty bird watching opportunity at this time of the year

This is a six mile hike starting at Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve Trailhead. We walked to South Adobe Creek Loop Trailhead on to Adobe Creek Trail, past the bowl, almost all the way to North Adobe Creek Loop Trailhead and back. We did take a minor detour through the Byxbee Park art installations, the pole field and wind wave. The park is beautiful and located on a sanitary landfill. Apparently, due to the nature of the land and sensitive habitat, there are no impermeable surfaces and all paths are of crushed oyster shells. There are no trees whose roots might pierce the clay cap. There is no irrigation so only native grasses are used! This Bay trail offers a longer walk, a lot more people as well as bird species compared to Bair Island.

Just beautiful as far as eyes can see
Fearless geese
Parts of the trail was a bit muddy with all that rain …
