Let's explore the steep hills, hidden stairways, and urban landscape of San Francisco with an awesome urban hike!
We are inspired by "Carpe diem", a Latin aphorism usually translated to "seize the day", taken from a poem in the Odes (book 1, number 11) in 23 BC by the poet Horace.
We are also inspired by the following articles:
