San Francisco

October 28, 2014  •  4 Comments

In September I was in San Francisco for work and naturally took my camera with me on the trip. As I mentioned before in my post about Santa Barabra, I love going to the west coast because of the 2 hour time zone difference. So when I normally wake up at 6:30 it is 4:30 am Pacific time.  

My wife and I flew into San Francisco and got to our hotel by 10pm Pacific time and ready for bed. The next morning we got up to try and photograph the Golden Gate Bridge at sunrise and took a cab to Baker Beach at 6:15am. I had grand visions of the Golden Gate with a bright orange sunrise in the background, but when I showed up Mother Nature had other plans.

My wife took this panorama of me while I was busy taking pictures.

After the "sunrise" photos we went for a long walk along the coast in pursuit of breakfast. We walked through the Presidio which was really cool, to the base of the Golden Gate Bridge, Crissy Field, Palace of Fine Art, Lombard Street, and final stop was the Powell Street cable car.  Below is the map of our walk and cable car ride.

When we got on the cable car I took a hyperlapse video of the ride which is below.  It was an experience riding hanging on to the handrail and it gets pretty close when another cable car passes you by.

Later in the trip we went to the free Cable Car Museum and were very impressed with learning how the cable cars work.  My fun fact that I learned is that the cable wears out and needs to be replaced every 75-90 days.

Cindi went on a bike ride from San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bride, to Sausalito, Mill Valley and took the ferry from Tiburon back to San Francisco.  Below is another hyperlapse video heading into Sausalito.  2014-09-22 13.05.42

One of the nights we went on a boat ride around the harbor.  We got a great view of the skyline and the Golden Gate bridge from the water.   IMG_7937IMG_7937 IMG_7945IMG_7945 IMG_7979IMG_7979 IMG_8018IMG_8018

San Francisco is such a fun city with lots of things going on.  We look forward to when we can go back.
