Fort Funston

Fort Funston was another “I can’t believe I’ve lived in the Bay for the better part of a decade and never been here” experience. Visiting new places is one of the best parts of this little resolution. Fort Funston delivered–sandy bluffs, ocean views, and all the dogs I could possibly want to pet. No real […]

Mt. Sutro

Lands End to Baker Beach

In fact, I’m not even sure Lands End wholly counts as a hike, but it was the last day of the month and I needed to eek out one last one to stay on track. Plus, it was fun to see all the tourists. Especially the ones strolling in high heels and starched white button downs. The […]
