First jog, and a walk to Los Altos

Today was a busy day, not only did I foolishly go for a jog 5 minutes after sunrise...

Interactive map for this route. ...but then I went for a walk with James in the afternoon as well.

Interactive map for this route. Let's just say my fitbit is very impressed with me.

A walk in the San Mateo historic red woods

James, Tony and I went for a little post long haul flight walk this afternoon in some red woods. Very nice.

Harcourt and Rogers Trigs

I needed to visit someone in deepest darkest North Canberra yesterday, and there was an hour to kill between that meeting and the local Linux User's Group meeting. It seemed silly to have driven all that way and to not see a couple of trigs, so I visited these two. Both these trigs were easy to get to and urban. Frankly a little boring.

Harcourt trig is in what I will call a cow paddock -- it doesn't have a lot of trees happening and feels a bit like left over land. Access to the nature reserve wasn't very obvious to me from the suburban streets, but the KML file below might help others to work it out. It wasn't too bad once I'd navigated the maze of streets and weird paved areas.

Rogers was similar, except access was more obvious because it is in an older suburb. This is a nicer reserve than Harcourt's, with a nice peak and some walking opportunities around the base of the hill. I think I'll probably end up coming back to this one as my wife is nostalgic about growing up backing on to this reserve.

Another lunch time walk

My arm still hurts, so no gym again. Instead, another lunch time walk although this one was shorter. The skies were dramatic, but no rain unfortunately. I found GC1DEFB during this walk.

Lunchtime geocaching

Woke up this morning with a sore left arm, which ruled out going to the gym. Instead, I decided to go for a geocaching walk at lunch time. I found these caches: GC235FM; GC56N78; GC5B9WT; GC5F6G3; and GC5F0PE. A nice walk.
