Palo Alto, Geng Rd. - Dec. 24, '11

Walking Distance: .8 miles
Walking Time: 0 hrs., 45 min. (11:35 a.m. - 12:20 p.m.)
Start and End Point: Public parking lot, Baylands Athletic Center, Palo Alto, CA

On this short segment walk (#2/3 today), I covered a small stretch of paved trail (with sidewalks, and shown as a "red line" trail on Bay Trail map) on Geng Road and Embarcadero Road, in Palo Alto.

From the Baylands Athletic Center parking lot, I headed southeast on Geng Rd., passing a few squirrels and crows, and skirting some orange cones and long stretch of black PVC pipe that took up some of the sidewalk area on Geng. I enjoyed the smell of eucalyptus trees and the sight of brightly colored purple and white kale (cabbage family) being used as landscaping.

When I reached Embarcadero Rd., I crossed the street to Ming's (Chinese Restaurant), and put in a to go order.

While waiting for the food, I walked east on Embarcadero to Faber Place/Palo Alto Tech Center office complex (across the street from the golf course driving range), where I'd stopped walking previously. I turned around here and strolled back to Ming's to pick up my Chinese Chicken Salad for lunch (which was quite good); and walked back to Geng Road to the Baylands Athletic Center parking lot.

14 crows; 11 little brown jobs (LBJs); 5 Canada geese (on golf course); 3 squirrels; 1 hummingbird; 1 bumblebee; 1 hawk
