The part of the Pioneer Monument that sits on Fulton Street between the Asian Art Museum and the San Francisco Main Public Library that is considered controversial is the one that depicts a Native American on the ground while a trapper and some sort of religious looking character hover over him.

Beach Ruins Ocean Beach San Francisco

Leave a comment

Due to the recent heavy wave and swell action beach ruins have been exposed at the end of Taraval Street in San Francisco on the ocean side. In the 1930’s a pedestrian tunnel was built between Taraval street and the Ocean, but it decayed or was heavily eroded which caused the ruins. Eventually the sands covered the ruins. There was pedestrian tunnels back in the 1980’s but they were taken out by the sewer system that now lines the Great Highway.

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.

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

Shipwreck Coast has several caves. But beware those caves are mysterious and have strange substances oozing from the walls.

Walking on this coast is not easy. Slippery rocks, jagged edges, falling cliff sides, or fallen trees could injure you if your not careful.

You will find many strange substances and some really interesting rock types.

20131014-082626.jpg
You will also occasionally run into or smell Dead Sea life.

20131014-082718.jpg
Those trees have a strange iron oxide rust like coating on them.

You will also find remnants of Sutro Baths.

Crosses in Lafayette California!

Leave a comment

I recently photographed the Crosses in Lafayette California for the second time. I originally reported on the hillside memorial in 2008. Another link from 2008 is here. http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2007/01/17/18347973.php

I just posted another report on Indybay, and posted one CNN’s iReport site.
And I posted a few pics on Flickr >>>>Crosses in Lafayette<<<<<
