Alhambra Ave., Martinez, CA - Jan. 8, '11

Walking Distance: 2.5 miles
Walking Time: 1 hour (4:00 - 5:00 p.m.)
Start and End Point: Walgreens parking lot, Alhambra Ave., Martinez, CA

A walk up Alhambra Avenue, was a walk through a suburban neighborhood, past Alhambra High School, and businesses along the way. There were a few signs of Christmas past and little leftover bits of fall color. Otherwise, the branches were bare, and sky was gray and cold today. I'm sure it would be a completely different place in the summer. It almost makes me want to walk the Bay Trail again just to see all these towns in other seasons.

I walked up Alhambra Ave. (toward downtown Martinez) as far as Masonic, where I left off a few days ago. I turned around and then walked back on Berrellessa Street until it rejoined Alhambra Ave. again.  stopped at Safeway from some water and cheese on the way back, and then bought some almonds at Walgreens.


Wildlife Sightings:
1 squirrel; 1 domestic cat; 1 dove; 2 little brown jobs (LBJs)
