Chinatown in San Francisco


chinatown, grant avenue, san francisco, california
Another business trip, this time to San Francisco, gave me the opportunity to meet up with a friend who played tour guide and showed me some of the highlights.  First stop: Chinatown.  I loved the light posts, the lanterns, and all the signs.  I also enjoyed the shopping.

Hiking Silver Lake Trail on Bald Mountain

hiking, mountains, utah
One day, while Doug was in meetings, I hiked Silver Lake Trail on Bald Mountain.  Two miles to the top, with a 1400 foot gain in elevation.  Warm sunny day, nice breeze, beautiful views...beats going to the gym any day.
