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.

The hiking group.

We walked approximately 7.35 miles and had a cumulative elevation gain of about 1,045 feet.

The group met at Starbucks Coffee located at the intersection of West Portal Avenue and Vicente Avenue. 
Barbagelata Real Estate on West Portal Avenue. It was founded by John Barbagelata (March 29, 1919 - March 19, 1994) who was a San Francisco City Supervisor and a 1975 San Francisco mayoral candidate.
