This time, however, only counted 77. I’m only going to count what I can see/feel. Yet another time for this one got 173, even more than the one that descends to Ocean Beach. Wondering how many more were buried under the sand as I climbed. First two pix.
Moved on to the “Funston Beach Trail” with the stairway. On one side of the day-glo green cones with "GGNRA" marked on them is the hang gliders’ landing area. Fog was blowing in and the orange windsock’s “nose” drooping, so no show. The short woodchipped cone-trail (pic 3) leads to the cliff-edge where the stairway swoops partway down to Ocean Beach.
With sand sometimes completely covering steps, one can get a different count each time, similar to Baker Beach’s Sand Ladder (around 253-ish last time for the BB).
Last time for the Funston Beach Trail’s steps, 160 count; this time 163. Could plainly see the logs this time. Pix 4 thru 21.
Back out of the park again on a different trail than when climbing up, hands dampened by doggy kisses and a moist ball that was twice dropped at my feet to toss. Pic 22: a happy dune dog.
Other park pix: 23 thru 30.
Last pic: Ocean Beach near the zoo.
