San Francisco Stroll

Organized by the Stanford Outing Club

Photos by Neil Mishalov

On 18 March 2006 we did a 9.3 mile stroll on the streets of San Francisco

We started this little ramble at the PRESIDIO OF SAN FRANCISCO at about 11:00 a.m., and walked the streets of San Francisco. Some of the locations we passed were: SAN FRANCISCO MINT, MISSION DELORES, MOUNT SUTRO, TANK HILL and ALTA PLAZA PARK. There was a total elevation gain of about 1,000 feet; 42 hikers participated in the hike. The leader of this hike was Julio Magalhaes.

All photographs were taken with a Canon S50 camera
