Jon Kennedy's 'Postcards from
the Nanty Glo in My Mind'
Land's End Trail hike, Part 3
Jonal entry 1164 | February 5 2011
final segment of this video is the most interesting to me, as it is
a section I had not been in for maybe 20 years. I guessed at one point
that the houses on the hillside over the Pacific Ocean inlet (the
Golden Gate) might be Pacific Heights, but a
look on the map shows that was an incorrect guess, as Pacific Heights
does not overlook the Pacific or any of its inlets. Those houses
must, according to the map, be part of the Presidio, the former military
base that had guarded the Golden Gate from the times California was
being explored and opened by immigrants from Spain. By the map, Baker
Beach is on the Presidio property (which is now part of the National
Parks holdings) and virtually everything beyond Eagle Point (seen
in this video) is within the Presidio.
