Nature walk: Coyote Creek Trail, part 3
Jonal entry 1185 | May 31 2011
My May 26 Nature Walk took me well beyond
the halfway point between Hellyer Park and Morgan Hill on the Coyote
Creek Trail. But contrary to what I say on the video, Bailey Avenue
is not the first exit from the Freeway to Morgan Hill. I misspoke
or, if you prefer, was plain wrong. Morgan Hill is still a mile or
more beyond that point. Never assume, Jon, never assume.... And that
may not be the only fabrication on this video, even if it's the most
apparent. Much of the time, you've already guessed, I don't know what
I'm talking about, which is why I try to keep quiet except when I'm
not. Last time, for example, I advertised here that the trail walks
would be interrupted for a visit to "another California."
