Fourth of July. Pedaling down the creekside. "On your left." Couples out for a stroll. People drinking at 10am. Stony Point undercrossing. Another ride out on the Joe Rodota Trail. Beautiful day. Fulton Road, swing a U-turn to cross over to Hall and WAIT A SECOND WHAT IN THE WORLD?!!?! Can it be?! YES!
Ladies and gentlemen, the creek trail between Fulton and Willowside is now paved.
[Three cheers to Sonoma County Regional Parks.]
