How is this creek valley different from all others in San Francisco? How did the water get here? And where does the water disappear to?
Topics covered on this walk: First water transport aqueduct to bring outside water, history of the abandoned reservoir and former Lake Honda, evidence for and against sewage ponds along the street, geology of SF.
Joel Pomerantz of Thinkwalks will give you an award-winning and thorough view of how the city came to be what it is, from the nature that was here first. Learn about the shifting sands of “San Francisco’s Sahara” and the shifting winds of land speculation that changed the western side of the city.
As always with Thinkwalks, you decide what to pay at the end of this short, richly narrated walk. We do a lot of hanging around talking, due to your extremely insightful questions and nerdy thoughts! Dress in layers for varying weather.
