Bayfront Park Trails
Jonal entry 1173 | March 1 2011
hike this Sunday, February 27, was on trails around and across Bayfront
Park in Menlo Park. Like the Shoreline Park and trail in Mountain
View, this park is adjacent to San Francisco Bay. Menlo Park is two

hike was cut short because my camera-phone
battery gave out after little more than an hour. The temperatures
this Sunday were even lower than the previous Sunday's, but the sky
was mostly blue with bright California sunshine.
Because the hike was shortened by the battery failure
(other obligations after church precluded my recharging it between
the former and the latter) virtually all the video recorded at Bayfront
is included in this approximately 14-minute video.
