Warning: I barely knew how to use my camera and nothing about editing my photos when I went on this trip around Thanksgiving 2013. The following photo is a "selfie":
When I went to San Francisco I expected to be roaming around the city and visiting museums. However, I was visiting a friend I had gone to Africa with. In Marin County I stayed in a very nice town named Mill Valley. My friend and I went hiking every day I was there. There was so much for me to see in the Marin County area I really didn't feel like going into the city.
It's not that I didn't want to go into the city. There just really wasn't enough time in a week to do all the hiking I wanted to do as well as see the city of San Francisco. I decided that seeing the city of San Francisco in-depth would be a second trip. I was enjoying the fantastic weather, the fall colors and the sunsets too much on our daily hikes.
Here are a few photos of the lovely town of Mill Valley. I love the combination of the foliage mountains and palm trees!
The following photos are of Muir Beach. There are many beautiful beaches in Marin County. I liked the rocks and the homes built into the cliffs at Muir Beach:
These photos were taken at Crissy Park. It's a great place to view the Golden Gate bridge, walk your dog, see San Francisco from a distance. You can see Alcatraz very easily too!
I am convinced at least one if not all three of the men who escaped from Alcatraz made it to shore. Maybe they were or are running our banking system ;) In case you don't remember, they were bank robbers. To me it just doesn't look that far from the shore.
Here are some photos of the Green Gulch Farm which is also known as the San Francisco Zen Center. I loved this place! Unfortunately, I didn't slow down enough to take photos that were focused so I made a collage. I also did not know how to use any editing software when I went on this trip last November (11/2013).

Thank you so much for visiting. I look forward to hearing your comments and questions. I am really wondering if you agree with me about the Alcatraz escapees surviving? Have a wonderful week my friends
