A San Francisco Jaunt on a Saturday Afternoon

A San Francisco Jaunt on a Saturday Afternoon

I've been working way too many hours, so after my morning appointments Gene and I headed to our favorite city for a bit of R&R and exercise. on the slopes of Mt. Sutro, San Francisco, CA After parking the car in the neighborhood near UCSF (University of California, San Francisco - a first-rate medical school, hospital and labs) we hiked through the campus, past the new fortress-like laboratory building, and headed to the 'back yard,' Mount Sutro, which I used to hear referred to as Mount Parnassus. Amazing to find wild lands and winding hiking trails in the midst of San Francisco. Of course, that's one of the reasons we enjoy it so much.There's not a better city in which to hike!

Sutro Tower, SFAfter tramping around for a while, admiring nearby Sutro Tower (TV broadcasting) up close, we walked down Edgewood Avenue (see David Ames' post, California Dreamin') enjoying the beauty of the street, and then at the end of the block headed down Farnsworth Street. You'll get a kick out of this first block of Farnsworth Street; take a look!

 

An early supper at Crepes on Cole, then a 20-minute walk back to our car capped off the day nicely. I'm relaxed, well-rested, happy, and ready for tomorrow!

I can see walking down those stairs but not up.  I remember hiking around San Francisco and the front of my thighs killed me.  Actuallyn from the walking down.  But is it a beautiful city to visit.  Thanks for the mini tour.

Hi Jane -- going up and down staircases, up and down hills, is a great antidote to working too much. Plus--it makes dinner and a glass of wine taste better than ever. Come back and visit again.

Hi Paula, it was so refreshing and so needed to pull away for an afternoon. I hope your weekend is equally delightful.

Craig, thanks fo the comments. San Francisco is full of hidden staircases, and some not so hidden ones. It was fun to share one of the lesser-known ones.

Hello Dawn, it was a beautiful day--blue skies and sun. Today we woke to heavy fog on the Peninsula, and I bet it's foggy in San Francisco, too. My morning run was chilly! Wishing you a great week,

Lottie,

I love those kinds of days.

The world gets right after you've taken the time to enjoy the walk, view, good food, and good company.

Thank you for sharing. :)

Hi Judi -- those days are the best; a bit of work, and then "sharpening the saw" as Stephen Covey states it so well.

I hope you've enjoyed your own version this weekend!

Thanks, Pam. You're right about the video - no way would a still shot capture all those stairs!
