I visited the Albany Bulb a couple of times, this day and 22 March 2009. I believe once a landfill for at least construction materials. You will find some old concrete and rebar in places along the trail. There is also some cool artwork in the NW corner of the bulb, that I didn't stumble across until my second visit there.
Welcome to my travel blog. Thus far, I have shared a few of my recent trips, some highlights below :
1) Japan, Sep 2014. With the allure of a very foreign culture to me, non-English speaking, Hiroshima, Tokyo, Shinkansen (bullet trains), Tsukiji fish market, and Sumo wrestling, it was time for a two week break from life and traveled to Japan for the second half of September. Wow, what an amazing place, just loved every minute I spent there exploring.
2) On assignment in Berkeley, CA (Sep 2008 - Apr 2009). I explored the San Francisco Bay area in some detail during the weekends I was there ... full info
Golden Gate FieldsThe horse track, looking SE toward the back of the building. This day (5 April) was the Daschund Derby. Every other race was a race run by 10 to 12 Daschunds. Their race "course" was about a 30 yard straightaway. Pretty funny though as some of them just ran all over the place.
