Bay Trail

Bay Trail

Here are some pics I took from a visit on Sunday to the stretch of the Bay Trail that goes behind the Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park.

A look at the salt marsh next to the trail.

A pair of Canada geese eye us warily from the marsh.

A few buckeyes are still in bloom prior to going dormant for the hot dry summer.

Another look at the marsh.

A patch of African daisies next to the trail.

There are large expanses of cracked mud in the marsh.

Light poles from the Facebook parking lot poke up next to the trail.

A couple of passenger jets fly overhead toward San Francisco International Airport 18 miles to the north, a United jet, and Turkish Airlines.

A hummingbird perches atop a dead fennel flower stalk to regard it territory at the edge of the marsh.
