A walk through several scenic San Francisco neighborhoods: 2 August 2014

Forty-three people gathered in the West Portal District of San Francisco for this walk. It was a typically cold and foggy summer day in San Francisco. It was an educational ramble through the streets, stairways, and paths of San Francisco.


We walked approximately 7.35 miles and had a cumulative elevation gain of about 1,045 feet. Click on the image to see the full-size map.
