Wate and Johanna Bakker led an urban hike in San Francisco of 4-5 miles long. We started at the Embarcadero, climbed the stairs to Coit tower where we looked at all the interesting paintings on the walls depicting events of the past in San Francisco inside the tower on the first level. As we walked up, we saw several gates to private homes next to the path as show in the one picture with Cookie and Amy.Then we walked down to China town for lunch at one of the local restaurants. After lunch we walked back to the waterfront. The day was sunny and pleasant with a cool breeze.

Richard Bainbridge led a hike on the pedestrian portion of the new section of the SF-Oakland Bay Bridge on Saturday, July 19th. It was  a total hike of about 8 miles. The trail from the parking lot to the bridge was flat and about 2 miles and from the start of the bridge to the end point another 2 miles with an easy 2% grade. There were a number of benches on the bridge where people could rest before proceeding. Lunch was at Jack London Square after the hike.
