Two weeks ago I was in wine country for a friend’s birthday party. On my drive back down to San Francisco I stopped to catch a shot from the Marin Headlands on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge.
The Marin Headlands is a hilly peninsula at the southernmost end of Marin County, California, USA, located just north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge, which connects the two counties and peninsulas.
Sea cliffs, military installations and incredible geologic phenomena (graywacke sandstone, radiolarian chert, serpentinite, pillow basalts, and shale) are scattered throughout the area. The peninsula is as stunning as it is historic. It features “a number of historic military settlements fortifications, including Fort Cronkhite, Fort Barry, a large number of bunkers andbatteries, and the SF-88 Nike Missile silo.”
I always love taking in the views from the Headlands and I make it a destination for anyone visiting San Francisco.
@motoridersd Thanks! It's even more beautiful when you catch the sun setting on the ocean's horizon. I think I have one of that too...
@justex07 got to see the Golden Gate from Hawk Hill for a few minutes before the fog came in and ruined it. It’s fogged in every other time
@motoridersd Hawk Hill is awesome. The fog is only awesome when you can get it at JUST the right moment, otherwise it's just mean.
