Get Vertical on a Stairway Walk through San Francisco's Potrero Hill

Stairway walk through Potrero Hill in San Francisco
My business trip also included a stop in San Francisco that conveniently included a weekend in the city.  I met up with friends for brunch and we decided on a whim to do a Stairway Walk.  We forgot our copy of Stairway Walks in San Francisco but were saved when we were able to download it on the fly to my friend's Nook.  We decided to tackle Potrero Hill.

I liked these orange flowers that resembed fireworks.  We could see clusters in different stages of development.

We passed an old timey car at the bottom of the hill.

Heading back into the heart of Potrero Hill, we spotted more old fashioned modes of transportation.

I even spotted a pink flamingo behind a wrought iron gate.

We passed the Anchor Steam Brewery.  They do tours, but unfortunately, only by appointment.

We climbed a very steep set of stairs and were followed by a bright white kitty looking for attention.

We were rewarded with one last glimpse of the city before concluding the afternoon's adventure and heading back downtown.
