Today's blog is all about putting together a couple of Volksmarches for September 2015 highlighting Pianta's work. Susan had a 5k (3.1 mi.) route planned for us today. We walked throughout Monte Vista historic neighborhood near Trinity University in San Antonio. Homes with Pianta's known work are along the route. It's a lovely walk.
The Volksmarch will start at the Chapman Center on the Trinity University campus, then go through beautiful a neighborhood before returning to the Chapman Center start point. Bob and I thoroughly enjoyed the exploratory walk with Susan. Here are photos from the first part of our day.
