Fort Funston with Annie and Julia

Annie and Julia decided to take a trip out to Cali for the week. As always, we like kicking off things at Fort Funston.

What an amazing afternoon. No matter how many times I come out here, I’m always blown away by the view (as long as it’s not foggy).

Here are some photos of when I visited Fort Funston with Tiffanie. And here’s another time when I went with Patrick.

On a side note, I was thinking about doing a series on the dogs of California, similar to The Humans of New York. What do you guys think? Would you read posts about stories of dogs in Cali?

Hiking at Mussel Rock


The California coastline is indescribable during a sunset. All the colors are surreal, almost a starting point for a painting by Dali.


Part of the experience isn’t just the colors, but the sounds of the birds, the warmth of the sun, and the breeze from the ocean.


Days like these make me regret selling my car. Most of the time I need to take an uber or public transportation to get to these kinds of views.


Perhaps in the future, there will be room for some sort of vehicle.


The amazing thing is that most of these views are within 20-30 minutes away from my current home.


There are days where I’m so focused on work and being productive, it’s easy to forget why we’re here. It’s nice to take a moment, take a breath of fresh air, and simply enjoy the moment.


There are all these techniques to reduce stress like meditation, listening to music, etc… but nothing brings me back to balance like watching our sun set into the horizon.

Hiking at Mori Point


I went hiking at Mori Point a few months ago. It’s a stunning park a couple miles south of Fort Funston (one of my favorite places near SF).


When you first arrive, you’ll notice a wall of boulders lined up against the shoreline.


There are views in every direction, including a nice bike path that takes you through a small marsh.


However, there’s a less travelled path that takes you up the hill for an exquisite view.


Some of the paths are gnarly… and in some cases, a misstep could cause you to tumble down to a very painful death. You can’t really see it in this photo, but there’s about a 100″ drop-off to the left of this path.


And did I mention that the wild flowers were absolutely stunning.


Here’s what the park looks like from the other end.


That hill doesn’t look like much, but it’s pretty steep. I wanted to get a better view, so I went for a climb.


At the top, there’s a spiral made of rocks. I’m not sure exactly what it means, but it’s pretty cool.


From this view, you could also see about a dozen whales. It’s quite a spectacle.


These steps definitely made it easier to get back down.



So this beat may look nice, but I heard that there used to be a sewage line that connected nearby. Pretty amazing hike. Highly recommended.
