VCS Field Trip
October 13, 2012
Spend a memorable Saturday morning exploring Land’s End — the western-most point in San Francisco. Start with a continental breakfast at the historic Cliff House with its spectacular ocean views, then walk through Adolph Sutro’s magical ‘kingdom by the sea’ with historian guide John A. Martini, regarded as the ultimate authority on this part of the City’s fabled past.
In the annals of San Francisco history, few had the imagination and wealth to make dreams come true. Adolph Sutro was such a man, one who parlayed his Comstock mining fortune into a magical land at the edge of San Francisco. No one knows the history of Adolph Sutro and his wonders better than John A. Martini, author, historian and retired National Park Service Ranger. Join John on a scenic and historic 1.5 hour walk as he brings Sutro’s “Pleasure Grounds” alive and recreates the area San Franciscans long considered their very own wonderland.
