I went out and walked the Bill Lockyer Trail on Hayward Shoreline the other day. Lockyer was our local state assemblyman when I was growing up. He went on to become California's Attorney General and State Treasurer.
In 1987, he wrote up legislation to create a Bay Trail which he envisoned as a 500-mile-long hiking and cycling path, a continuous recreational corridor with bayshore parks and protected natural habitats, that encircled the San Francisco and San Pablo Bays. Thirty-Three years later, there is 293 miles open to joggers, walkers and cyclists. I walked the segment of the trail along the Hayward Shoreline named after "The Father of the Bay Trail":
|Those are the salt flats of the San Francisco Bay and you can smell it|
After walking for a while you get a nice view or two:
wonderful nature, yes, enjoy to observe.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful day
Nice to be out in nature. You had some good views!ReplyDelete
Our walking paths aren't quite as interesting. Great views.ReplyDelete
Those are some very pretty views!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I'd love to walk there.ReplyDelete
Great views! We walked 70 miles in 3 days about 6 years ago in Spain for the "Camino". An experience I'll never forget!ReplyDelete
I would never have thought of salt flats in San Francisco. Thanks for again showing me something new... #MLSTLReplyDelete
California has so many interesting eco systems - enjoyed your photos!ReplyDelete
Looks lovely Patrick - there seems to be a real hiking flavour to #MLSTL this week - obviously the nice weather is bringing people out into nature for a stroll!ReplyDelete
