Today is Walk to Work Day and San Francisco Bay Trail Project Manager Laura Thompson snapped photos on the section of trail she used to get to her office at 375 Beale St.

Thompson walked the trail along the Embarcadero Promenade between the Ferry Building and Harrison Street.

“The Bay Trail gives people a healthy and fun option to get to work; walking along San Francisco Bay,” Thompson said. “What a great way to start the day.”

The 500-mile Bay Trail — which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year — is now 70 percent complete with a vision to connect people to the bay and communities along the edge of San Francisco Bay.

The trail links to residential areas, transit stations and employment centers with more than 2.7 million people living within 2 miles of the Bay Trail.
