American Canyon Rd. West - Aug. 14, 2010

Walking Distance: 2.4 miles
Walking Time: 40 min. (8:42 - 9:22 p.m.)
Start and End Point: American Canyon Marketplace, shopping center parking lot, American Canyon, CA

Once again I took advantage of mild summer weather, and walked after sunset -- in an area that had at least some street lights. This evening I also had a sidewalk to stroll down, which was a welcome change of pace. Uneven patches of dirt and gravel are less fun in the dark.

First I walked West (toward the Baylands) on American Canyon Road (shown as double red lines on the map). I turned around when I reached the intersection with Elliott Drive, and retraced my steps, walking as far East as the intersection of American Canyon Road with Broadway (also known as Highway 29, and/or Napa Vallejo Highway).

I have only one very blurry photo to post here. Putting my camera on a tripod would have helped. But, my primary objective was to walk down this street quickly; and I've made it a practice to travel light. So, the trade-off is -- no night photos to show. I balanced my camera on a wire fence to take this picture, hoping it might steady the shot. However, wire fences have some give to them. And, I ended up with a "painting" instead of a photograph.

Wildlife Sightings:
None; it was too dark
