Palo Alto bay lands walk… What's the point of going out at bay lands to enjoy nature when the noise pollution is horrible. The scenery might be nice, but it is overshadowed by all the planes the small planes the general aviation planes assaulting our senses. It is not a peaceful experience. Palo Alto leaders and environmentalists were ahead of the times setting aside and protecting LAND, but they are way behind dealing with noise pollution. The fact that 3 arrivals routes converge daily over Palo Alto into SFO is a travesty. Someone should be fired over this!! I am looking seriously at moving out of Palo Alto to get some peace and quiet. When did it become accepted that I can no longer sit and relax in my beautiful backyard? When did it become the norm that hiking the DISH you have to put up with 5-10 rumbling, low flying jets ruining your weekly hike? I don't have any faith that Anna Eshoo/FAA will restore our quality of life, and I can't live with this for 5 more years.......
