Opening of New Trail Segment - Sept. 20, 2010

Distance: Walked about 1 mile to opening ceremony
Time: 10:30 a.m. - 12 noon (ceremony started at 11 a.m.)
Start and End Point: Sunnyvale, CA

I recently returned from a long trip, and am eager to get walking soon. However, I took a break from walking up North this week to attend today's ceremony. Today an important, new 2.4 mile stretch of the Bay Trail opened near Moffett Field, allowing access from Mountain View to Sunnyvale.

After speeches were made, and proper recognition was given to all those that had worked long and hard on making this happen, a previously locked gate was opened -- and bicycle riders, pedestrians and runners streamed through the gate. It was a beautiful day, and I decided to walk to the ceremony to enjoy the scenery, even though that meant the space was packed with attendees by the time I arrived.
