Finishing with some shots of the City…
A sandwich of the Avenues: the Sunset (top), Golden Gate Park, and the Richmond (bottom)

Brilliant shots! Probably you took them all from Marin Headlands, with the bay in the foreground.

Yes, for the most part... To be completely accurate, there's a few from the Golden Gate Bridge, but taken the same day, on my way back to the City from the Headlands.

Sacramento Amtrak
2012.09.25

I had a one-day “business trip” up in the Tahoe area, which meant a ride on Amtrak California’s Capitol Corridor up to Sacramento. Not really part of the “Bay Area” per se, but there is a not-insubstantial number of Sacramento area residents who commute into the Bay Area, many of whom use the Capitol Corridor.

5:00 am, Powell BART

Amtrak has no actual station in San Francisco city limits… Passengers need to take a Thruway Bus to catch the train at Emeryville Station across the Bay. If you’re wondering, I was one of only two passengers on the ride over to Emeryville.

Arrival at Sacramento:

Morning commuters waiting for a Bay Area-bound train.
Most Capitol Corridor trains operate between Oakland (Jack London Square) and Sacramento, but some start or end as far south as San Jose (Diridon) and as far north as Sparks, NV (via Auburn, Truckee, and Reno).

North of the station are the former Southern Pacific railyards, slated for a large redevelopment with up to 12,000 housing units, 2.4 million SF of office, and 1.9 million SF of other commercial.

Oh how I miss traveling the Capitol Corridor to Sacramento... I did the portion between Sac and Richmond, and it was a real treat for me (although at the time, I didn't have a decent camera to start with). But the train reminds me of that wonderful journey... and I traveled that corridor alone!

Pictures didn’t turn out so great… I rarely take my camera out at night.

Giants Victory Parade

Perhaps no day more fitting than Halloween… I dropped my work and stepped out of the office for a bit to relish the moment. Enjoy.

I was at the parade too! Where did you watch the celebrations: along Market Street, at Civic Center, or both?

I started at Powell and just walked towards Civic Center. Took me close to an hour to just get a few blocks down the street.

Dang. I took BART straight from Daly City to Civic Center, and by the time I boarded the train (past noon), it wasn't that crowded at all.

Sweeney Ridge
2012.09.22

Jumping back in time again, here’s the sequel to my other Pacifica thread, a hike through Sweeney Ridge… As usual, we start off with some transit shots at the much maligned Millbrae “Intermodal” Station.

A walk up into the hills of Millbrae takes us to Crystal Springs…

And finally to Sweeney Ridge...
We start off on the east side, with views of the Peninsula communities along the Bay shoreline.

Burlingame, home to airport hotels…
