A crazy view off the cliff at Alamere Falls in Point Reyes National Seashore. It’s a rare spot where the waterfall feeds directly into the ocean. Read details on how to get there at Bay Area Hiker.
And then another rewarding view heading back into the city later that afternoon!

One of the many perks of San Francisco: this is December.
A perfect morning in the de Young gardens, no Karl the Fog in sight.

A Seussical colorful forest for the opening of the David Hockney exhibition at the de Young Museum. Red suspenders included.
Secret jungles do exist in San Francisco!
Sometimes a 6am run is worth it. View of the sun rising over the bay from Buena Vista Park.

Sometimes, you accidentally stumble upon an Organ Rally. They held up traffic in the small California gold country town of Sutter Creek. We were told it’s the largest (only?) such gathering of organ enthusiasts in North America. I can believe it!

A “peaceful protest” through printmaking at YBCA, in a collaboration with the Mobile Arts Platform (pulled by that Vespa right there) and SF Art Enthusiast.
I just spent a week enjoying the sights Chicago, from its great urban heights to the expansive natural wonderland in its backyard.
Top: The view of a candy-colored sunset from my friend’s apartment building, located right on iconic Lake Shore Drive. Less than an hour later, we were hit by a wind and rainstorm that effectively reminded me of Chicago’s sly weather tactics.
Bottom: A perfectly still, overcast day at the Chicago Botanic Garden. It’s not actually in the city, but in northern suburb Glencoe. We biked from the neighboring village of Wilmette along the Green Bay Trail, which runs right next to the Metra commuter train. I knew the trail had been around in Native American days, but apparently the history goes farther back: it’s possible that it started as a migration path for woolly mammoths during the Ice Age 12,000 years ago!
