Walk thru Ft Scott, former coast artillery hdqtrs, and then step into the heart of the Presidio with its historic army housing still in use. See the former public service hospital and its accompanying cemetery; the 1895 Presidio Golf Course; the National Cemetery & its inspiring setting; eucalyptus-shrouded trails; Goldsworthy's The Spire; and a stunning view of Alcatraz, Angel Island and the Bay.
