Along the Lands End Trail in San Fransisco there is an out cropping of upon which this labyrinth has been constructed out of stones. I'm not sure if this is maintained by the park service or just some sort of grass roots expression of ingenuity. It's approached after descending a steep side trail and, at least for me, was a total surprise. There were at least a dozen people working through this to reach the center. It sits atop a cliff overlooking the bay with a spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge in one direction and the pacific ocean in the other.
While visiting San Francisco I found myself with some free time on a Sunday. I ended up here at the beach at Point Lobos on the western end of the city. With perfect weather it turned out to be a picture perfect day (pun intended). The waves are bigger and water cooler than back home on the gulf coast of Florida, nonetheless each has its own unique beauty. In fact, there was a pod of humpback whales that passed by. Everyone stood up and pointed to the spouts and flukes as they lumbered along. Later I walked along a trail and enjoyed a sunset at another remote beach not far from here. It's no wonder many consider San Francisco the most beautiful city in the USA.
This weekend I'm in San Francisco for a photowalk with Trey Ratcliff and a bunch of friends from The Arcanum. Several hundred showed up, some as far away as Scotland and Australia which made my commute from Florida seem trivial. We walked along the Embarcadero and as we got closer to the Bay Bridge quite a few of us lingered here as we became fixated on the bridge. As you may already know I love to shoot bridges and this ranks up there among my favorite. In any case, the photowalk was a huge success and a great time was had by all including yours truly.
