Sunrise 5:49 am: Good place for a stump

Some jobs are best left unfinished. Such is the case with the removal of a large eucalyptus tree located between San Francisquito Creek and Sand Hill Road. It was cut down a couple of months ago over a week's time. The reason for its removal was puzzling; it didn't appear to be diseased or in the way of one of Stanford's many construction projects. It was such a large tree that the cutting and removal of its trunk and branches involved lots of workers and large equipment. Then they disappeared, leaving a stump with stairs cut out on two sides. The Dawn Joggers have noticed it's already attracted its share of climbers and sitters. This morning, with the sun rising in the background, the male DJ and Cassie decided to explore the view from the top.
