September 20 — Ute Creek West

North of 17th, west of Pace, south of power lines (21st extended east), east of Alpine.

Total for today :   17,660 steps and  3:06 time. 

This neighborhood has the western part of Ute Creek Golf Course winding through it.  It was looking pretty green from the recent rains, and is well clear of any flooding areas.

I think Calaveras County (in California) is best knows for the Mark Twain short story The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.    I didn’t know this before, but the wiki article on Calaveras County linked to below says that ‘calaveras’ is the Spanish word for ‘skulls’; so I guess it also fits in with the Halloween pictures above!

The Roadrunner cartoons were always fun, if a little repetitious.  I believe the following cartoon where Wile E. Coyote catches the Roadrunner may be a bit edited.
