San Francisco Day 1

We left Scott's to go pick up Thai. Here's Thai getting off the plane. He'd come in from Lubbock via DFW.

We then went straight to San Francisco. We first headed to the Twin Peaks of SF. Two mountains where you can see the entire city of SF. Here are a bunch of shots from there.

Then we went off to Alamo square. You may recognize the spot from every other picture ever taken of SF (all the rest are of the Golden Gate Bridge).

Then we went off to the Golden Gate Bridge. Before we crossed it we went to the south end and walked up and down the bridge. We have a bunch of photos of the bridge. Some of these shots were taken from the Marin Headlands in Marin county. This area is a mountain where you can look down on the bridge and downtown. Some pretty good scenery I would say.

Fort Point: You may recognize this from the movie Vertigo

An ugly shot of the bridge as we were driving up to it.

After crossing the bridge we went to Sausolito. The place was so crowded we couldn't find any place to park (after about 25 minutes of trying). So we proceeded to San Raphael and went to the In-N-Out Burger (yum!). We then went up to the Marin Headlands.

On the way back we payed the three dollar toll to cross the Bridge and went to the Palace of Fine Arts.

It was then off to Fisherman's Wharf. We parked and walked for the rest of the day around the Whart and into North Beach. The first thing we did was ride the mean cable car.

While we were waiting for the cable car a street performer came around and did a very impressive juggling act.

After taking the cable car to one end of SF we wandered around downtown for a short time. There are a lot of bums in SF. They're all annoying too. We then took a different cable car back to Fisherman's Wharf. At this point we went to Lombard Street.

We decided to eat dinner in North Beach. It's about a 10 block hike from the Wharf. We are at a nice Italian place which didn't have a long wait (unlike a bunch of the other places).

Due to the remoteness of Yosemite there probably won't be another update until Monday night.
