Merry Christmas to my Active Rain family of friends. It sure was tempting to take more pictures today of some fabulous mansions in Presidio Heights and Pacific Heights with their gleaming Christmas decorations! But, I promised no more this year.
So---instead, I'm sharing a couple of pictures I took on Gene and my annual Christmas Day hike. When we lived in San Carlos for all those years, we would hike at Edgewood County Park every Christmas. Since moving to San Francisco, our annual hike is about 7 miles, from our house, across the Presidio to Immigrant Point overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Marin County hills, just outside the Golden Gate.
This year our late-afternoon hike took place on a crystal clear, cold day, perfect for walking. As we returned, we heard owls hooting close by -- a beautiful addition to Christmas Day!
