On a beautiful Fall morning our team of Bill Dyer, Lynn Reid, Sheri Dutkanicz and I set out to find a smoother transition on the Oak Valley Trail from the bluffs to the valley. In one short but challenging section the current trail is steep and not easily negotiated by bikers and some strollers. Was there an alternate route through this rugged terrain?
The moon sits up there so inviting this time of year!
Bill looks for a practical solution.
Unfortunately, at least on this day, no alternate route was discovered that did not entail a climb or a swamp.
We did stumble across a strange structure near the Open Space boundary, possibly on the property of the house in the background.
Not a deer stand, possibly some sort of monitoring device or a feeding station (but for what???). My guess is it's a homing beacon left by visitors from Pluto, who plan to return some day to take over the Earth because we humiliated them by downgrading their home to a mini-planet! If you know what it is, please leave a comment.
