Nature walk: Coyote Creek Trail, part 4
Jonal entry 1186 | June 13 2011
My seven-mile Nature Walk on June 7 continued
the trail from Bailey Avenue to the three-mile marker from the trail
terminus, presumably (because I've never seen its end) at a park in
Morgan Hill. So the next segment should be the last going in the southerly
direction. There is still a segment north of Hellyer Park, where the
video records of this trail began, that I have not covered and may
do so before saying adieu to Coyote Creek Trail.

met friend Rod Perez.We have so much to talk about when se get together

seen on the top right, but whether the trail goes there is yet to
Useful work phrases: I like you. You remind me
