Active Rainers "own" San Francisco

San Francisco is a delightful city in which to walk, and on Veterans' Day, after 3 days of NAR conference meetings, 3 of us got together to clear our minds and get some exercise. While our numbers were small, the sharing of ideas, the laughter, the exercise wasn't. Chris Hansen, Ann Wilkins and I had an enjoyable afternoon.

Palace of Fine Arts

We walked a very scenic 5-mile loop, starting at the Marina Green, then past the gorgeous Palace of Fine Arts, followed by our LONG, STEEP staircase up Lyon Street. (Can you believe that many people train on these stairs, running up and down, doing crunches and weight lifting at the top?)

From there we entered the Presidio, and took some "almost trails" to more clearly defined ones to Julius Kahn playground and a well-earned water break. On we went, above El Polin Spring to Inspiration Point, then along the Bay Ridge Trail to the National Cemetery.

After a pause to pay our respects on we went down the hill, enjoying some outdoor art and a chat with other hikers. On we went, under the highway leading to the Golden Gate Bridge (the old Doyle Drive) and to Crissy Field. Walking at the edge of the bay to the Crissy Field cafe took us past dogs at play, joggers, bicyclists, walkers, past wind-powered generators, past the FREE charging station for electric cars. By then we were ready for a coffee and cookie break before returning to our cars.

Hiking in San Francisco with congenial friends, sharing laughter and business ideas - one recipe for a perfect afternoon.

Kerrie, our 8 dwindled to 3, but we were large in spirit. Next time I'll plan a hike prior to the meetings. My invitation stands: I'll tailor a special-for-Kerrie hike next time you're in town. (Have you hiked to the labyrinth along the Lands' End trail?)

Looks like you all had such an enjoyable day Lottie and some really great pictures by the way with the Presidio cemetery especially fitting during this Veterans day week.

Laura and Scott, let me know when you plan to visit SF--I'd love to meet you both and I'm always wishing for an excuse to take a hike! Here, Marin Headlands, Mt. Tam - you name it!

Wish I had still been in SF - I would definitely have gone with you. Did quite a bit of walking the week before early in the morning.

Looks like a terrific walk - loved the photos. SF is SUCH a walkable city for those who are able to navigate the hills. Otherwise it is certainly a challenge.

Hi Jeff -- I wish you could have joined us, too. The hills give San Francisco its special feel and all the neighborhoods we love so much. But---one can tailor a city walk around many of the hills if that's appropriate. Next trip!
