On my walk a couple days ago, i decided to go early (9:00am ish) unstead of later (4-6ish). It was a very different scene up there in the morning. I saw a lot of ladies. most of them with dogs a few with babies. But even more that the female race, i saw so much wildlife! As well as some things that are just oh so Bernal! I hope you enjoy!
The morning light reflecting off of the bay looking south east from Bernal.
One of my favorite Bernal monuments… This rock is always being “artified” with a purpose! This time… in support of gay marriage!
- Close up reading “My hand, Is there, Holding yours.” supporting gay marriage.
Secret (not so considering one of them is wearing reflective cal-trans style vest and they all had clip boards!) meeting on Bernal Hill.
Now, you’re gonna love this one. This is clearly covering some overnight graffiti, the unusual thing, the buffers (ones that paint it all out) left a note and taped it to the ground! (so artistic too with the dog poop on the left corner!)
Just gotta love the “Wet Paint, by Buff King” sign taped to the pavement… but wait…. this is not the only one!
- Here is more of Mr. “Buff King’s” handy work… you are gonna love this one… just check out the “buffing paint job” the king employed here…
Now, that is one heck of a buffing! Nice paint job(s?)! I wonder which part of this is actually the wet paint painted by the Buff King? Seems like maybe he needed more paint! haha!
Sad that this big tree had become rotted and had to be cut down. I think because of that, these little finches were all in turmoil… And all over the place. Clears up a photo op view tho!
- Here are those poor traumatized finches in flight. This was only a small number of them but you get the idea.
usually i do not do my hiking early in the AM, but i was surprised how much wild life i saw out in the mornings. I love these little birds!
I do think i like the haze of the other hikers/joggers/walkers/dog walkers in the late afternoon with that somewhat glazed look over tdheir faces as they pass in loops. So much more is on your mind at the end of the day than at the begining of the day. I did not get half as friendly of a hello or a smile while passing the AM crowd compared to the PM crowd. I think that the AMers are used to their crowd being the ones up there and are leary of anyone new they may pass on the trail. Or, they were just living in the my shit dont stink and yours does mentality. Regardless, i loved all of the quirky things that i ran across in this am walk, but i think i will most likely be sticking to my busier afternoon crowd personally. I am not going to be acquiring a dog or a baby any time soon, so i will most likely be given the eye of tresspass again if i do the AM walk.
Who knows, maybe it was just this one day. I better not judge an entire time period on one day. …We will have to try again and see if this is the norm or i just caught a bunch of snobby fridged females on this walk.
