Shipwreck coast is a lightly used to term to label the area, East of Lands End, and West of the Golden Gate Bridge. You can access via stairs along the coastal trail towards Eagle Point. Eagle Point has a labyrinth. The hike down is easy, the hike back out is not easy.
Once down on the coast, you”ll see relics from Sutro Baths, pieces of wrecked ships, caves and unexplained mineral rock deposits or corral.
It is best to hike it at low tide.
One of the caves excretes a mucus called snottites.
The hike is not for the faint-of-heart.

Coyotes will not eat your dogs

Recently NBC BAY AREA came out with a report that coyotes are showing up in odd areas within San Francisco City Limits. In the piece it stated that one lady said a Coyote went after her pet Chihuahua . http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Coyote-Urban-Wild-Creatures-Appear-in-Downtown-SF–236280831.html?_osource=SocialFlowFB_BAYBrand
I don’t believe the statement.
I’ve seen Coyotes back down from Wild Turkeys.
If you see a Coyote raise your arms, stomp your feet and holler. It will back down.
Coyotes are trying to fatten-up. This is the month they mate.

Coyote sightings in Golden Gate Park.

The tide has turned in Golden Gate Park when it comes to Coyote sightings, and encounters. I can walk along certain paths, then I stop listen and look and now more often than not the Coyotes are watching me and stalking me. They are not threatened by me because they look at me for extended periods of time, and then they move on or get closer.

The yearling or juvenile Coyote watching me in the photos are one of the pups in one of the photos from a year ago.

I think they do a great job with the Christmas tree in San Francisco’s City Hall.

Project Open Hands’ indoor greenhouse in San Francisco. I find this both innovative but also futuristic.

Captured this shot using the iPhone 5C, which has a fixed ISO setting of 50.
It was in an area that was approx. 38 degrees in Golden Gate Park.
