From November 13 - 16, 1998, Deanna and I went down to San Francisco. Deanna was
attending a conference at a downtown Hotel while I was along to explore the city.
We arrived on Friday and attended a reception at the Hotel. On Saturday, while
Deanna was at the conference, I decided to take a tour of the city. On Sunday, I
took a ride on BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) to see more of the area. On Monday,
although the conference was over, we stayed in San Francisco to look around some more.
We went to the Hard Rock Cafe, rode the Cable Cars, visited a viewpoint called Coit
Tower, and went to Fisherman's Wharf. It was a great trip - until we needed to leave.
Check out the pictures, then read about our
Nightmare Return Trip.
