I took my camera with me this morning when I walked Lady, and shot some photos of what lies beyond the fence in back of my house. The scenery isn't all that great, but it's what I look at morning and afternoon, and it's actually a lot better when the sun is shining.
This is looking north, and the Park is to the left.
This is the view looking south, and if you enlarge the picture you can see the freeway - US50 that runs from Ocean City, MD all the way to San Francisco, CA.
My house is just left over the fence, with the blue tarp covering the swamp cooler.
And this is the light industry to the east of the Park.
It was a dark overcast morning as shown by the photographs. After loading three of them I used the enhance feature on the 4th which lightened it up considerably. With all the problems I have loading pictures into blogger I didn't want to go back and enhance the others and then have to re-load. This "trail" was actually once a street that ends in a cul de sac just before the freeway, but has now been closed off to motor vehicles. If you walk over to the main trail that runs along the river from downtown to Lake Natomas, it is much more narrow. The American River is about a mile to my north.
I took a break in my walking regimen today, reasoning that all muscles need a break now and then, so I'm giving mine time to heal.
Tires, Windshield Wipers!
