San Bruno Mtn, near San Francisco: Urban #MicroAdventure

IMG_6277

Not quite as exciting as my longer adventures, especially because we were walking inside of a cloud for 3 hours!

I’m a “Junior” member of a local hiking group, composed of retired guys from the Palo Alto and Los Altos area. Their median age is about 25 years older than mine, and they’re quite a wonderful and inspirational group. They hike every friday, followed by a very leisurely lunch. I join them a few times a year.

Yesterday we hiked on San Bruno Mountain, which is between the city of San Francisco and the SFO airport. You may be familiar with it if you’ve seen the hillside letters: “South San Francisco The Industrial City”. The top of San Bruno is accessible by car, for a small fee. We parked at the bottom and hiked to the top. On a clear day the views of SFO, the City of San Francisco, and the SF Bay are amazing. Not so much yesterday!
