Nature walk: Coyote Creek Trail, part 3

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." I had hoped to get away for the Memorial Day weekend, but again I misspoke.

Otherwise, the video tells all you need to know and the map corrects some misleadings. Except that Bailey, which is the cross street closest the bottom of this map, is not named.
