The wonderful thing about San Francisco is one minute you can be in the heart of the city, walking down streets that reek of urine, surrounded by tourist, and dodging cars at busy intersections, and the next minute you are climbing up hill, not a person in sight, and resting on a rock over looking the city.
My 7 x7 city is small but it holds so much beauty. It is not often that I am able to get out of town (I hate driving with a passion) so I am making an effort to get out and explore new places, preferably ones with beaches and/or lots of trees. My most recent adventure took me to Corona Heights Park, which is surprisingly close to my apartment. It's an easy hike and once you reach the top you're treated to epic city views. If you live in the city, or planning to visit, it is a must see.
