    Wander west, past Letterman Army Hospital, through the old buildings and quarters, to the post headquarters. This is a favorite running spot for hard-core athletes. They go through a residential area. Each one has a different design such as a moon, a sun, and swirling designs with fish, flowers, and shells.

    Vulcan Steps. At least the heart and lungs work well. Each section features a design with flowers, butterflies, leaves, and other items in a garden. Like Adah, I am blessed to live here, and we both are humbled by the friendly strangers and locals we meet daily, especially when we let a walk take us on a new adventure around town or up a familiar stairway and hill in any sort of weather. Most of the old wooden stairs have been replaced with stone stairs. She has been the author of Stairway Walks in San Francisco since the first edition was published in

    Bakalinsky was a family social worker in St. The day was hot and I was soon wishing I had an earlier start and been better prepared. The design is a combination of patterns from various cultures including Adinkra cloth from Ghana, Native American painted pottery, and woven patterns from Central America and from the Middle East. As you can see from the picture on this post, it is called the Mosaic Staircase because a portion of the steps have a gorgeous sun and moon mosaic design on them. This set is located near Twin Peaks so I imagine it has a great view of the city. Adah sees how stairways knit our neighborhoods together, embracing our various little enclaves strung over hill and yonder dale.
