San Francisco, from Golden Gate Park to Downtown: 28 March 2015

It was another lovely, sunny and balmy day in the Bay Area. I must say however, that I would really like to have some significant rainfall before the rainy season ends. 


A map of the route. The approximate distance traveled as tracked by GPS was 7.6 miles. The approximate cumulative elevation gain was 546 feet. Mile markers are shown on the track.
This chart shows the elevation changes encountered during the ramble.

You don't see many flying buttresses in the United States. They're common in Europe, especially England, France and Italy, but not in the US. So, it is always pleasant to view the flying buttresses that are an integral part of the architectural design of St. Dominic's ChurchClick on the image to see the full-size photograph.

The Carnegie Library is located at 351 9th Avenue in the Richmond District of San Francisco. It was opened to the public in 1912 and it was updated in 2009.Click on the image to see the full-size photo.
