I’ve worked across the road from Bayfront Park in Menlo Park for nearly 13 years. I run the trails there 3 or 4 days a week and, because it’s a convenient stop during my commute home, have photographed it in all kinds of weather. Looking northeast from the park’s entrance, this was this afternoon’s view of Flood Slough.

My ISP was having issues yesterday so I couldn’t post, but I did take some photos. This view at the park across the road from where I work has been blogged here several times, but I never caught it with a dynamic cloud cover at low tide. Here it is.

Today was another rainy day in the Bay Area so there was no stopping during the commute home. Here is another image from yesterday’s Bayfront Park stop. It was taken about 50 feet away facing in the exact opposite direction from where I took the previous post’s image.

Yesterday’s rain wasn’t the end of the early rains in the Bay Area. A new, bigger storm started rolling in late this afternoon. I could see that it was already raining to the north where I was headed so I stopped at Bayfront Park to grab some “dry” shots. I run in this park several days a week because it is conveniently located right across the road from where I work. Nice!

Two blocks from where I work is Bayfront Park–the only open space in Menlo Park. During lunchtime, three or four days a week, I put on my running gear and slog the trails. I’ve been running there for years. Now and again the view from the hilltops is spectacular. To get shots of the vistas, however, requires a bit of a hike. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time at the end of the work day at the start of my long commute home to get into hiking mode. But yesterday, because of the wild sky, I decided to head up the closest hill from the back parking area and grab a couple of quick shots. This is my fave.
