scenes of the city
About an hour northwest of San Francisco, past bustling east Marin, you'll find the Nicasio Valley, where cows and horses rule the hills. Despite it's small town vibe, the valley has plenty of activities to fill your three-day weekend.
For this week's Scenes of the City, we visited a spooky old glass factory in the delta town of Antioch. Anchor Glass Factory (1400 W 4th Street) was demolished recently, but for some time it was a photographer's and explorer's haven. Like most abandoned industrial sites, it almost seems like everyone clocked out one Friday and just never came back, leaving behind magazines, boots, and tools.
Have you ever crossed over the Richmond Bridge and wondered what that old Victorian home is doing atop a craggy rock in the bay?
This week we left SF behind for the cool, shaded trails of Muir Woods. Just 12 miles across the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods includes 560-acres of park land, six-miles of trails, and the chance to get up close and personal with 600-year-old trees including Coast Redwood, Tanoak, Big Leaf Maple, and California Bay Laurel.
