The Golden Gate Bridge
Zoomer on San Francisco on a beautiful clear day.
On the top level of Fort Point you can see the bases of where the cannons used to go. Now it's just the noise of the bridge above.

Next we drove out to the Marin headlands since it was such a clear and beautiful day!
Point Bonita from the other side.
The next day we drove along the coast between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz. Here's one of our favorite views at Pescadero State Beach

Next, we headed into the redwoods to explore Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park
The Redwood Loop trail is an ADA-Compliant 1 mile path through an old growth redwood forest grove.
Passing through the redwoods late afternoon on a weekday is a quiet and beautiful experience!

Redwoods are so hard to photograph - this beast is 270 feet tall!
But it's not just giant trees - underfoot there are some interesting mushrooms.
The Fremont Tree, with a full cave underneath!
Another interesting mushroom.
Patterns in Redwood Bark
Albino redwood! It looks like backlit branches, but they were white!
