SF Presidio (1024)

SF Presidio (1024)
View from a relatively recently constructed overlook in the Presidio, in the distance is Alcatraz. What's important here is actually what isn't usually surprising -- all of the trees. It turns out that the tree growth at the Presidio is unnatural, having been started by the original planners of the Presidio. See the nearby picture.

Many, many years ago -- took my mother. It was well worth the trip. We were able to wander fairly freely, so you could take some to reflect on what it was like.

I bet you can't do that anymore. I do remember driving past it once when I had to take someone from Merced to Novato.
