"This photo was taken at Folk Festival on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. That I believe is in 1974. I was hanging out with a lot of people at the folk music house on Clayton and Haight, in the Haight-Ashbury. These people were all members of that club. Every summer they would have a gathering where people would come and sing to each other. It was very romantic. It was right on the ocean side of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County. A lot of acid was consumed at that event." - Roger Steffens
