I counted it to be 68 steps long. It took me up to Mira Vista, a dead end street, a plauful neighborhood of kids playing football. So if Im not wrong, this stairway is the stairway that transcends from San Francisco to Daly City. I needed a challenge today. I needed nothing but stairs. I went up and down the staircase about 4 times, then stopped and had to catch my breath. Every time I reached the top, this cute dog (pic 5) kept barking at me. There was a cemented walkway at the top (pic 4). Each time i reached the very top to the walkway area, i would put my foot on the rail and perform quad and hamstring stretches. The stairway exhibited some real charm and glamour with views of Crocker Amazon, Mclaren Park, the blue water tower, and downtown San francisco.
The stairway wasn't very well kept. In the middle was a puddle of newspapers, coke bottles, and trash. The residents need to do a better job at keeping it clean. After 7 ups and downs, I was ready to call it quits. But I figured that since I went this far, I would continue a tad more. I went up 2 more times. My legs were burning and then I decided to jog up the 10th and final time for a total of 680 steps climbed. After that, I got a sprite drink and put some simple sugar to refuel my body after a grueling workout. It felt great and I know I will keep getting in better shape. I will definitely be doing more ups and downs in the near future.
