Yesterday was the perfect day to enjoy the Hank Aaron State Trail. I wanted to take the opportunity to ride the entire western section before it closes for five years! If the Zoo Interchange reconstruction project goes as planned the segment of the HAST between 94th Place and its intersection with the Oak Leaf Trail near 124th St. will close in November. The DOT says it probably won't open again until 2018.
Although I went out alone, there was plenty of company on the HAST yesterday. It's nice to see the popularity of the Trail.
I made these two shots in the section to be closed. We still have until November to enjoy the Trail. (2018 sounds like a very long time away!)
