1989-1990: I lived in this roach-filled apartment complex at the corner of Bird & Willow. Thought the whole thing was gonna come crashing down in the Loma Prieta earthquake. Southern Pacific Railroad had a rail through this trail until recently. Weird to see it empty. Used to be a lot of abandoned cars along the tracks. We’d broke every car window and headlight that stayed here. Train would come barreling through the middle of every night and blow its horn. I slept on a couch under that first window on the bottom floor. This is probably why I can sleep through most noise still. (at Three Creeks Trail)
