Christmas and winter are quickly approaching, but Fall colors are still present throughout California. After a rainy weekend in San Francisco, everyone was glad to see the sun shining Monday morning. I had planned to head back south en route for San Diego, but decided I couldn't pass on the opportunity to enjoy the day. After checking the surf and finding the tide far too high, I decided to head over to Golden Gate Park.
Outside Lands Music Festival is just one of the park's many large gatherings). The massive undertaking to transform this area into one of modern America's greatest city parks (New York's Central Park is only 4/5 the size of Golden Gate Park) was not easy; during the first twenty years of development, over 150,000 trees were planted throughout the park and many are still there today.
