Monday: (11/21) I made a sausage, cheese, and egg sandwich for breakfast. I carpooled up to San Francisco to Stern Grove . We met our flow hikers there. 9 of us hiked the Bay Area Ridge Trail (BART) from Stern Grove To the Arguello Gate of the Presidio. Along the way we took side trips to the top of Mt Davidson, Twin Peaks and Mt Olympus. The on through the Golden Gate Park Panhandle to the Presidio. My fellow hikers made their way back to the cars by Uber lift. I continued on through the Presidio to the Golden Gate Bridge. I then caught a bus to North Beach and had dinner at Golden Boy Pizza. Then another bus to catch Caltrain home. Nice hike.
