So I took a little stroll the other day to see what I could find...

The hill out back photo 2.jpg
Here's the hill directly behind my house. I wanted to see if I could get to the top

after walking around a little while, I finally found an approach up

Ah, here's the flag we saw from down below!

And way down there somewhere, is my house. Across the way, those are the mountains you can see from my front yard! It's pretty magical stepping outside every morning. :)

The bay in the distance. All of this only took about a 15 minute walk. I love it here! :D

Lovely pictures.

We did the cross country move back in 2009 from Boston to Las Vegas. Best move we made.

Beautiful. Reminds me of Cowles mtn. in San Diego County (sometimes referred to as "S" Mountain) I've climbed numerous times. It's a little steeper, but the switchbacks make it easy. It takes about 30 min. at a brisk pace. This reminds me of its residential views at or near the top with La Mesa (with the ocean beyond) to the west and Santee to the east.

Aaah, South San Francisco! I knew it looked familiar, but couldn't quite place it. You'll want to try the peak of the San Bruno Mountain Park, too - but, the very best view must be from along Nimitz Way, just past Tilden, outside Berkeley. Easy to get to by bus (the 62, I think, from the downtown BART), and you get to see all of the "main" Bay Area, *and* the eastern landscape and towns as well. Next time I'm in orbit, I want to take some ultra-high res panoramas from those locations, and more. ^_^

And perhaps needless to say, you should also check out the Castro Theatre - a truly wondrous film haven, complete with Mighty Wurlitzer ascending from the floor before showings.

You bought a house there? That's a huge step, congrats!

I know we don't really talk anymore Q, but it is wonderful to hear you're doing well. Enjoy yourself, you deserve it :3

Wait, did you buy the house or are you guys renting? Should definitely post some pics of the inisde :)

Scenary looks nifty though hopefully you have an easy way to get down the main part of the city (car or decent public transit) because... I wouldn't want to do the walk from the hill to the city too often ^.^;;;
