Being out and about in SF will so totally be worth it! It will also so totally involve climbing, hiking, sweating and exercising. But, thanks to the many elevated lookout points throughout the city, you probably won’t know where to turn to first. The views will be worth it and, let’s face it, my thighs thanked me too 😉
Today, I grabbed my camera and hopped onto the 28 Bus towards 16th and Morega (get off on 19th and Morega). Searching for the Mosaic Stairs I had seen on Pinterest before, I explored a little more of the Sunset District and was not disappointed. Not only did I find the stairs but, to my surprise, they led up to an elevated little hill that locals call Turtle Hill. It’s real name, Grand View Park, does the scenery more justice though. Walk along the sandy trail and gaze at Ocean Beach to your left, Golden Gate Bridge ahead of you and the downtown area as well as Twin Peaks to your right.
Of course, as with many landmarks in the city, make sure to catch a clear day. If you can. May the odds be ever in your favor….
