Up early, the San Francisco sunrise illuminated Alcatraz, Angel Island, and the San Francisco Bay through the sleepy streets of the neighborhoods.
One of the nicest benefits to all of the hills and weird, windy streets and stairs of San Francisco is that you will literally stumble upon views like these throughout the city as you travel by foot. There are, of course, as many ways to reach your destination as there are directions on the compass . . . so, in the act of actually walking to your destination, you will be uncover the beauty of the city.
This morning, I just happened to be on the right path . . . at the right time.
