Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 386

I worked at the IBM Almaden Research Center for over 20 years. In that time, I probably drove Camden Avenue between Almaden Expressway and Harry Road at least a thousand times, stopping only at the stop signs. I knew there were parks and trails along the road, but I was too busy to check them out.

Today, we decided to explore that area, so we drove to the Camden Avenue trailhead for the Los Alamitos Trail. It was a bright, sunny day; we left the paved trail for the shady dirt trails alongside and started wandering.

There were flowers to see and the creek was flowing – it was a pleasant walk, especially in the shade.

I was surprised to discover that part of the walk went through “Singer Park” – there were no signs, but it was labeled as such on both Google and Apple Maps. I guess I should have stopped there years ago!
