Baylands Nature Preserve, Palo Alto California

My commute by bike is usually on city streets, but I decided to detour through some lovely area trails this morning.

Morning commute

The view was breathtaking. I passed within five feet of a gorgeous falcon which sat perched on a signpost. He just swiveled his head looking at me as I biked by. I can’t describe the feeling of watching the sun rise and the shore birds flock as I ride silently through the low fog.

Does your commute take you through areas of natural or man-made beauty that is perhaps not accessible or appreciated from inside of a car?
