A walk in Oakland: 27 September 2014

I joined a walking group as we explored some of Oakland's streets, paths, and walkways. 

A house in the Trestle Glen neighborhood.
The route we traveled, with mile markers shown. The approximate distance covered was 9.8 miles as measured by a GPS receiver. 
A graph of the elevation changes encountered during the ramble. The approximate cumulative elevation gain was 1,250 feet. 

The group met in Oakland at Tierra Mia Coffee, located on Broadway and one block from the 19th Street BART station. 
The downtown Oakland Sears Roebuck building. The building was completed in 1929, and it incurred significant damage during the Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989
The Oakland Veterans' Memorial Building was completed in 1926. 
A partial view of Lake Merritt. 
A house located in the Adams Point neighborhood
