Reflections and sightings from [almost] daily jogging at dawn

Sunrise 6:45 am: Oak firmly holding its ground

Occasionally the Dawn Joggers deviate from a Sunday hike and take a walk instead, often selecting an unexplored neighborhood. Such was the case this drizzly morning, when they set out with Cassie to take a look at a cluster of streets between Alpine Road and San Francisquito Creek. They'd jogged by this neighborhood, with its mix of architectural styles, hundreds of times but never detoured down any of the lanes that dead end at the creek.

What they found on close inspection was an amazing hodge podge of houses - cabins built in the 30s or 40s (some beautifully maintained, others dilapidated hippie huts), mostly routine 60s/70s era two story tract homes, and brand new mini mansions tucked adjacent to the creek. One house appeared to have been constructed with an existing oak tree in mind; the tree was spared and the roofline was adjusted.
