Sunrise 6:50 am: Big pulpy mess

Rain - and more rain - has turned the wood chips that are spread along portions of the Stanford pathways frequented by the Dawn Joggers into near pulp. If someone could figure out how to "harvest" the pulp, it would potentially yield fine paper; it's a similar combination of softwood chips mixed with hardwood chips, including the short fiber of eucalyptus, that's used to give fine printing and copying paper its smoothness. All of this moisture has also yielded a particularly large crop and wide variety of mushrooms along the trails.
