Cupertino Footbridge

Cupertino, California, is best known for being the home of Apple Computer, but around our house, its even better known as my husband's hometown. We were there a few weeks ago to see his family and went for a walk across the new Mary Avenue Bicycle Footbridge. According to the city's website, it is the first cable-stay bicycle pedestrian bridge over a California freeway. I thought it was a sweet little bridge. (Photos are from my iPhone, so sorry about the low quality.)

The bridge was built by Swinerton and designed by HNTB. As my father-in-law pointed out, its like a simplified version of the famous Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay, which was designed by Santiago Calatrava.
