PHOTO ESSAY !! Hill 88, located in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, in Marin County just north of San Francisco, an old abandoned military radar monitoring base, stunning views on a stunning day: March 3rd, 2018.
Here’s a pretty little scene filmed with my iPhone. It looks weird because I applied the “Warp Stabilizer VFX” in After Effects. It’s desperately trying to smooth out the flowery plant which is wildly blowing around in the wind. This is what happens. It’s only 5 seconds of video, but I looped it forwards-backwards. Click here for a trippy version.

The Golden Gate National Recreation Area includes many scenic areas which used to be controlled by the military. From Fort Cronkhite, located in Marin County, you can hike to the summit of Hill 88. This hike will reward you with spectacular views in all directions, and a healthy workout (5-6 miles, 1000′ elevation gain). The abandoned, dilapidated & graffitied structures which reside at summit were once part of a radar station for the former Nike Missile Base which is located nearby.
The surf is up by Fort Point. A great day to be a tourist in San Francisco.
Got pounded by a storm yesterday, this was the view of San Francisco the next morning.
San Francisco makes the transition to 2017, viewed from Marin County.
It’s about 1.25 miles between the anchorages at either end of the span. This video almost covers that in around 35 seconds, (I speeded up the video), meaning we’re traveling about 120 miles per hour. Hard to believe.
I recently celebrated a birthday and I received a card with this wonderful picture on it. I dare you to look at this picture and not smile.
Actually, it’s just another sunset over the Pacific, viewed from the Marin Headlands (just north of San Francisco).
