Urban Hiking

20140618-105339.jpg

How well do you know your own city? Whether new to your town like me (kind of) or a life long resident I think it all too often becomes easy to fall into a routine and overlook the incredible adventures right outside your door. The hubs and I recently committed to doing a better job of exploring our beautiful city and last weekend he made good on that commitment by organizing an urban hike from where we live in Hayes Valley through Golden Gate Park and ending at Ocean Beach. I had NO idea how cool Golden Gate Park is…so cool in fact, that cool isn’t even a cool enough word to describe it. You could explore for hours on end (which we did) and never get to see it all. Next up, maybe one of these followed by a little bit of this. Any fun surprises in your hood recently?
