Visting the Golden Gate Park, Golden Gate Bridge, Hawk Hill & Battery No. 129
in San Francisco, California, June 2011
According to San Francisco information, the Golden Gate area climate is temperate marine and generally mild year-round. Daytime temperatures range from 40 degrees in the winter to 75 degrees in the summer. Morning and evening fog rolls in during the summer and winter months, and can burn off by midday.
At Hawk Hill, looking down onto the bridge, the weather was quite cool, but after walking through the battery to the other side, the breeze was much warmer.
Hawk Hill is a 920-foot (280 m) peak in the Marin Headlands, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge and across the Golden Gate strait from San Francisco, California. The hill is within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
I took the photos of the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as the rock formations (much of which was developed from fossil) and other breathtaking ing views from here.
The battery was to the left of the awesome rock.
