"Walking the Bay Trail offers unique views, for locals and visitors alike," -- Corinne C. DeBra

Corinne C. DeBra figures she took close to 30,000 photographs during her 1,000 mile walk around San Francisco Bay, from 2009 - late 2011. Photos from Corinne DeBra's 1,000 mile walk, and prints that offer unique vantage points of the Bay from local artist Linda Gass and photographer Bill Scull, will be on display at the Canessa Gallery in San Francisco, CA, during the month of April 2012.

"Walking the Bay Trail (in segments), getting exercise, discovering wonderful and diverse views of the Bay, in different seasons, as well as places to stop to eat and drink so close to home, were some of the many great things about this walk," according to DeBra.

"Enjoying the many scenic parks and wildlife, seeing pre-Silicon Valley industries, and learning about history were very interesting. I tried to capture views that people might be interested in experiencing or preserving. There are walks for all abilities and interests along the San Francisco Bay Trail (http://www.baytrail.org) -- a trail that circles the Bay, from San Jose in the South, to Napa in the North.

Another clear benefit: so many great Bay Area chocolate makers, like Dandelion Chocolate, Scharffen Berger, Recchiuti and TCHO, to name a few.

Chocolates from companies mentioned above will be served on opening night. There will also be sea salt caramels from Kika's Treats (made from S.F. Bay salt), and chocolate tiles from Poco Dolce, until they're gone.
