    I also want to thank Andrew for leading this great hike and the very interesting route he chose ! There were too many photos to upload here so I placed a copy of the larger set under: Hope we can explore more of the Mission (with its amazing sights and sounds) in some future hikes. P.S. please let me know if you don't like any of the photos included and I'll remove them from the posts.
