Land's End Trail hike, Part 1

My hike this week was on Tuesday afternoon at what has long been my favorite trail, at San Francisco's Land's End section of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. I usually walk only about half way up the trail and back, but this time I made it all the way from the entry traffic road (Point Lobos Avenue) to the traffic road at the other end of the trail (El Camino del Mar).

platform that is not Windows-compatible, click here to watch the video on YouTube.

It turned out to be a perfect day for photographing the Golden Gate (the relatively narrow inlet from the Pacific Ocean into the San Francisco Bay, which extends from near Sacramento to the east of San Francisco to nearly San Jose south of San Francisco, making it one of North America's largest metropolitan bays. Though San Francisco grew up mainly as a shipping port, most of the shipping has moved to Oakland, five miles east of San Francisco across the bay.

Since one-third of the clips I shot of the hike required a video over 10 minutes in length, I guessed that dividing all of them into two parts might exceed video length maximums on YouTube, so I'm dividing this one into three sections.

Today's chuckle

Did you ever walk in a room and forget why you walked in? I think that's how dogs spend their lives.

Thought for today

Hell is the only place outside of heaven where we can be safe from the dangers of love.
