Scenes of the City: Fort Funston

Tall sandy bluffs, barren beaches, and consistently stellar hang-gliding are the key features of beautiful Fort Funston. Hugging the southwest corner of San Francisco's windswept coastline, this protected area includes the last remnants of the sand dune ecosystem that used to blanket the western half of our city.
