A beautiful summer day in San Francisco. 
Alcatraz Island. 
A Chinese cargo ship just crossed under the Golden Gate Bridge, entered San Francisco Bay, and is heading to Oakland where the cargo will be unloaded. 
This building is located on Grant Avenue near Columbus Avenue. North Beach and Chinatown can both justifiably claim this location. 
San Francisco National Cemetery 
The next three photos show the remnants of the three underground missile storage and launching pads of Nike Missile Launch Site SF-89L. This site is located in the Presidio. 

Distance: 9.2 miles. Cumulative elevation gain: 629 feet.
