San Francisco, from downtown to the Asian Art Museum and a Taiwanese "Fancy Animal Carnival": 3 May 2015

I visited the Asian Art Museum and viewed the outdoor exhibit, "Fancy Animal Carnival" by Taiwanese artist Hung Yi. 

The  "Fancy Animal Carnival" by acclaimed Taiwanese artist Hung Yi was on outdoor display at San Francisco's Civic Center Plaza from 19 April to 2 May. We arrived at the site on 3 May, a day after the exhibit concluded. Fortunately, many of the whimsical sculptures were still viewable.
The route. The approximate distance traveled as tracked by GPS was 9.0 miles. The approximate cumulative elevation gain was 911 feet. Mile markers are shown on the route’s track. 
The graph shows the elevation changes encountered during the ramble.
