A Walk Around Fort Mason


I don't I have ever done a blog about Fort Mason in San Francisco. Fort Mason was the port of embarkation for the US Army for over a 100 years. During World War 1I, two-thirds of all troops headed to the Pacific Theater and one-half of all of all Army cargo went through it. Today, it is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area:







It is a mixed-use area as old officer's homes have been sold and people live in them today:







And there is a ton of open space:



And a couple of statues:


Congressman Phillip Burton who wrote the bill the created the Golden Gate National Recreation Area
And being San Francisco, it might have a decent view or two:



Alcatraz
Fort Mason is a beautiful place to enjoy a day.
