We had a great time in San Francisco and were able to experience some of the attractions that bring people to this beautiful city from all over the world.


On our way to Alcatrez!

Frank Morris’ escape tactic.  He made a fake head out of soap, paper,hair from the barber shop, and painted it to fool the guards


We enjoyed the Anchor beer made in San Francisco, California.  When in Rome!


The CMG dinner was a blast!!  Every decoration and entertainment planned was fantastic

The Golden Gate Bridge. The hike up to this overlook was steep and OUTRAGEOUSLY windy but this view of the bridge, city, bay, and Alcatraz was breathtaking!


We drove down highway 1, beautiful scenery!!!



We went t Alcatrez, ate lunch at the Fisherman’s wharf, admired the Golden Gate Bridge, took in the scenery of HWY 1, and enjoyed lots of good food and drinks during out trip to San Francisco!  Thanks for the great visit SF!
