We spent an afternoon in San Francisco hiking to Land's End, a remote and deserted beach with fabulous views of the water. The hike itself was all down hill to reach the beach. The return hike was a b*tch! But the views were definitely worth it. The beach was littered with beautiful rocks and timbers, and as the tide was coming in, it battered and splashed the rocks. I'm so glad we took the time to make this hike -- it felt like a quiet and precious discovery so near to the city.
