Follow the ranger
Farmers now tweet from their tractor cabs; park rangers tweet from their trails. If you’re in Palo Alto (or, like me, want a whiff of the old hometown) follow @PAranger and pal @rangercurt on Twitter.
You’ll see dawn photos from the Baylands, get reports of llamas on the trails, and birds messing with the rain gauges in Foothills Park.
Not a tweeter? Enjoy Palo Alto Open Space on Facebook.
