Adventuring with friends is one of my favorite things to do. However, finding undiscovered locations in the Bay Area can be challenging, as many places have already been well-documented and shared online.
One day, we heard a rumor about an abandoned train track somewhere below Foothill Expressway. We spent a couple of hours driving around and looking at the satellite view on the maps app to try to find it. We finally came across the entrance at the start of golden hour. Never-ending graffiti lined the walls along the tracks, which seemed to extend forever. I couldn't help but wonder what this railroad might have looked like when it was in use over fifty years ago.
The sound of cars echoed from overhead as we walked up and down the railroads, admiring the graffiti and stopping to take pictures. The most rewarding part was knowing that we had found a new place. After posting it, many friends asked us where it was — oh well, that's a secret for them to figure out!
