I spent the morning walking around taking pictures, most of which don’t look the way people think of San Francisco.  Walking North from the ferry terminal I eventually found the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.  Herculese is a steam powered tug.

People Watching in San Francisco

Street  photography is my favorite.  It is basically people watching with a camera.  Unfortunately, the trend is to prohibit it in Europe.

In the glass city, reflections are everywhere.  Reality is meaningless.  Nature is for bugs.  Meaning is trapped behind the mirror.

Are my glances of this city random, is there a pattern, or am I just lost in the fog?

The view of Emerald Bay is visible from the road.  Van Sickle Park is right behind the Marriott.   The socks are manufactured by Sock it to Me, a company owned by a young woman I met on my last trip to Kauai, early in 2014.  Number 8 is typical of the older cabins around Tahoe.  If you visit Lake Tahoe when school is out, expect to see a lot of children.

Heavenly is the main ski area at Lake Tahoe.  In summer the trails are strewn with rocks and logs.  Tons of snow must fall before the slopes are open.  A gondola runs from right next to the Marriott to the 9,150 foot level and a chair lift adds about another 1,000 feet.  Further small elevation gains are possible with a short hike.

To reach lake Angora follow a complex set of directions from South Lake Tahoe.  The final turn is not marked and the first 100 yards of that road looks impassable.  Along the way signs warn the parking lot may be full.  You will need $7 in cash or a check to place in an envelope for parking.  Follow that with a short hike up the hill and you reach Lane Angora.
