Golden Gate Bridge

This shot of the Golden Gate bridge is from the first stop over on the Marin side, I must look like a camera geek because 3 people stopped me to take pictures of their groups while I was walking around over there.

San Francisco and Bay Bridge Skyline

The Bay bridge and San Francisco Skyline as seen from the East Bay. This was taken at low tide and all the trash is visible in the San Francisco Bay.

SF Bay

A mudflat on the east bay (Berkeley, Oakland) side of the San Francisco Bay. It can be a nice place for a bike ride, even in November.

Golden Gate Bridge and beach

The beach on the San Francisco Bay (Presidio) side of the Golden Gate bridge is pretty busy and a neat place to just hang out. Baker beach lets you get pictures from the ocean side.

Point Pinole

I went to Point Pinole in Richmond, California the other day and thought I'd share some pictures. Overall its a nice place, but not worth the $5 parking fee, when so many similar places nearby are FREE. Dogs can run around off-leash on the trails, but there is a $2 dog fee. The parking lot is nice though, they have a shuttle that runs to the 1200 ft long pier and back, that way you don't have to carry 100 lbs of fishing gear out there.

There are ton of non-indigenous eucalyptus trees planted by the explosive companies, some of them are pretty big. To the right of the ruined foundation is one of the more minor paths, which look great for mountain biking, overall its probably a little bit limited spacewise for really tearing it up for more than an hour.

There is a freshwater pond with a couple large fields nearby.

And of course, as with any San Francisco bay area coastal park, you get great views.

Bay Area Hiker has a hike guide and more photos.

The SS Red Oak Victory

The SS Red Oak Victory is one of Richmond, CA's attractions, it has obviously seen better days. I suppose if you are really into ships it could be interesting, but skip seeing it otherwise. You do get to drive through the Kia and Hyundai car offload lots, and a really run down port on the way. The Oakland Tribune has an article on the ship's restoration here, Jef Poskanzer has more pictures here.
