Photo Bytes: Scenic San Francisco

The Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge

Everyone has seen the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Here are some of my favorite shots from my time exploring this popular city.

I visited San Francisco during the government shutdown in the fall of 2013. As a result, many of the popular attractions in San Francisco were closed, including Alcatraz. Here it sat, empty. Silent. Foreboding.

The ever-popular Pier 39.

One of my very favorite spots in the city: Ghirardelli Square.

The Painted Ladies.

The island of Saulsalito was one of my very favorite places in San Francisco.

I dined at the Cliff House Restaurant, located on the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The landmark restaurant, built in 1863, was closed for a few weeks, due to the government shutdown, and had to petition the President to reopen.
