Reflections and sightings from [almost] daily jogging at dawn

Sunrise 5:49 am: Big news day at the lake

Some mornings are quiet for the Dawn Joggers, other are jampacked with sightings and activity. Such was the case today. As the made their way past the series of dorms leading up to Lake Lagunita, they came upon a serious crime scene. Seems the Wall Street Journal and Barrons were being taken from in front of the East Asian Studies Theme House. A warning sign had been posted and minicam installed to catch the culprit or culprits. The fact that anyone clearing a campus of such capitalistic propaganda during their undergraduate days would have been hailed a hero was not lost on them.

The lake itself was a hotbed of activity. A new crop of frogs had emerged from their tadpole state, not in the numbers of a couple of weeks ago but significant enough that the DJs had to watch where they stepped. Then in the best news of the day, Stanford had turned the water from its other reservoirs back on, and it was once again filling the lake. A very good development for the brand new ducklings spotted on Tuesday.
