San Francisco Morning

A week ago today I was in San Francisco enjoying the cool morning air and marveling that the expected fog was hanging over the Golden Gate Bridge rather than enshrouding the city. I'm not an early riser but I knew that if I didn't get up early and venture out to photograph I'd end up checking out of the Radisson and not be able to find decent parking. The trees sparkled in the early morning light and while others were busy looking down in their rush to get to work I was looking up.

I walked for about seven miles which is six miles past my limit and I felt the burn from the climb up and down hills for days afterward. But the glory of standing on Lombard Street looking down the steep incline I had slowly walked up remains with me. From Lombard I walked straight down to the bay where I joined the march around the bay; bikers, joggers, and strollers like me all seemed to have eyes on the bay as we bumped into each other.
