Tried to walk through the Presidio National Cemetery on Veterans Day.   Normally one would expect music and speeches but there was apparently a ceremony at the new Cemetery Overlook.   Security was tight and we were kept away twice.   Once from within the cemetery and the second time when we approached through the woods.   The Overlook sits on the Bay Ridge Trail.Hike led by Bryan.

For some reason the YWalk was canceled due to weather.   So I just went on my own.  It was a little overcast but never rained.   I decided to see the wet trees from the record storm the day before.   Unfortunately, the Eucalyptus Tree left wet bark, leaves and branches everywhere.

The purpose of this bike trip was to test a new AMOD AGL3080 since my QSTARZ BT-Q1000P stopped working.   After passing under the Lefkowitz underpass under 101 and ran into tens of Russian nursing home residents walking on the pathway.   Apparently, it was walk time at the nearby Hillhouse and I had no idea that a retirement home had replaced the Stanford Intellectual Property licensing offices.

Standard Castle Rock Loop but the GPS failed to log for about an hour.   It was hot, mid 80's, with less than a dozen people on the trails.   No campers at the Castle Rock Campgrounds but I could hear gun fire and semi-automatic weapons fire from the Los Gatos Shooting Range next to the campsite.

This walk started at Waverley and University in Palo Alto but for some reason the beginning of the track is gone and then goes haywire in the parking structure on Alma.   In any case, this walk consisted in going up and down the streets in Palo Alto while waiting for someone at the Waverley Surgery Center.   The physician was late and then left before getting to the patient.

Wednesday 2B Hike.   Mitch was supposed to lead this but he got a last minute modeling job.   Edna led.   Short walk on the Dipsea Trail to Cardiac Hill.   Noodling around looking for a view before lunch and a look at the Lone Pine Spring.   (Oddly named because it was deep in the woods.)Then we lost the rest of the group.   The seven left came back on the Ben Johnson trail to Muir Woods.
