Three days in San Francisco

We decided to spend three days in San Francisco because it has so much to offer.  As we drove into the town, we were taken aback by the price of gas.

Want to pay over 5 bucks a gallon?

On 0ur first day in San Francisco, we visited the Point Reyes National Park, we blogged about that here: https://webetripping.wordpress.com/2013/03/30/cool-lighthouse-at-point-reyes-national-park/.

On our second day, we visited the hippie area of town called Haight Ashbury.  This is where the hippie movement started and is where Jimmy Hendricks, Janice Joplin, The Grateful Dead, Hells Angels and many more groups dwelled in the 60’s.

This was funny — during our walk we saw this flyer at this house.  I guess this homeowner had hit the limit with people urinating on his doorstep.

No urinating!

On the third day of our trip, we took a city tour and then visited Alcatraz.   Here are some pics we took along the way.
