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.
