I started this ramble at the16th Street Mission BART Station. I walked through the Mission District and the Noe Valley neighborhood, among others, and finally arrived at the West Portal Muni Metro Station.

San Francisco has many alleyways located in many parts of the city. The majority of the alleyways were constructed when the primary method of transportation within the city consisted of horse-drawn vehicles. My thought is that the alleyways were designed to provide easy access to backyards, which could provide a dry safe shelter for horses, if necessary. The official name of this 15-foot wide alleyway is Quane Street; it is located in the Noe Valley neighborhood. Click on the image to see the full-size photograph.

The approximate distance traveled was 6.7 miles. The approximate cumulative elevation gain was 796 feet. Click on the image to see the full-size map.
