where the sidewalk ends

&%$@#$!!! stairs between me and my car. Which way to go (with hills) to find a ramp? I don't know! No signs or indication. This used to kill me on campus at De Anza, too, and I thought of making a special campus map with annotations for elevation changes and accessible paths -- but never had the energy to do it.

 

A further critique. I parked there, then my choices were to go down a sidewalk around the back of a building towards the way I wanted to go (towards Acacia). That sidewalk ended abruptly in a curb and some hedges, around a corner, so I was stuck. The other choice was basically to come this way in reverse, towards the center of campus, which would have gotten me stairs, stairs, and stairs. The other choice was to go basically *into a complex of buildings*. As it turns out, that 3rd option, a completely non intuitive one, is the way I finally got back to my car.
