Hidden Gems of San Francisco
Red decided that having been to the popular tourist destinations, it was about time to try visiting some of the less touristy and more local hidden gems. After speaking with the hotel staff of the Golden Gate Hotel and some locals on the street, Red found out about some interesting walks. Lover's Lane used to connect the Spanish presidio to the mission, but was later used by US soldiers to visit their lovers and families away from the barracks. Parallel to Lover's Lane is an interesting piece of art called Wood Line. This is one of Andy Goldsworthy's famous natural sculptures. Off of another tip, Red explored Diamond Height's Billy Goat Hill. Along with amazing views of the city, there is a hidden rope swing that swings brave riders over the hillside looking down on steep hiking trails. Next it was off to discover the fairy doors that have popped up around Golden Gate Park, and Red spotted one! Another unique hike recommended that Red should check out was the Moraga Mosaic Steps. It definitely made for an interesting walk! Lastly it was off to the top of Twin Peaks. This hike was to the top of one of San Francisco's tallest of the many hills. Not a bad view at all!
