Bay Trail


On Sunday D. and I spent a little time on the stretch of the Bay Trail behind the Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park.  Here are some of the pics I took.


The trail.





Buds are beginning to swell on the buckeyes lining the trail.





The ramp leads to an observation platform over the marsh.





The salt marsh is winter-brown.





Ubiquitous power lines stride through the marsh.





Fennel seed heads catch the late afternoon sun.





A sign next to the Facebook parking lot cautions people not to be careless with food.





A feral cat slinks down the trail ahead of us.  Perhaps it is hunting some of the wildlife attracted by the food left out.





A view across the marsh toward Bayfront Park.





Another look at the trail, and its nice smooth paved surface.





A bufflehead hangs around with a pair of shoveler ducks in a drainage channel next to the trail.









A pedestrian symbol on the ground shows us which lane of the Bay Trail to use where it shares the right of way with Facebook campus trams (and bikes).  (Even in a wheelchair, I am considered a pedestrian.)





A light standard on the edge of the Facebook campus stands like an exclamation point against the sky.





A euphorbia flower next to the trail.





A look across the marsh past Bayfront Park toward the Santa Cruz Mountains.
