Imola Ave. to Highway 221, Napa - Aug. 7, 2010
Walking Time: 25 min. (6:29 - 6:54 p.m.)
Start and End Point: Shopping center parking lot, near Imola Ave. W. and South Napa Market Place, Napa, CA
This was a relatively urban stretch of trail and as I made the turn south, from Imola Ave. onto Highway 221, I found myself having to get used to cars whooshing by me at high speeds again.
After fortifying myself with a meal at In-N-Out Burger, I walked West on Imola, toward the Maxwell Bridge (that spanned the Napa River), until I reached the intersection (traffic light) with Gasser Dr.-- my end point from a previous walk. I then turned around and walked East on Imola Ave.
From Imola, I turned Right onto Highway 221. Soon after, I passed the entrance to Napa State hospital and a bus stop structure that had seen better days, before turning around and heading back to Imola Ave. Across the way, I could see the buildings for Napa Valley College.
