For this week's Scenes of the City, we decided to check out some of the more stunning architectural gems of downtown San Francisco. So, we toured the FiDi and took in buildings, young and old.
For this week’s Escape From SF, we headed to the Santa Cruz Mountains to nest inside the Redwood Treehouse, hidden in a forest just outside of Corralitos.
Heading to the Unknown Coast in Point Reyes National Seashore, we made our way over to Elephant Sea Cave—a short but slow and difficult scramble south of rocky McClures Beach—named after nearby Elephant Rock, shaped like, well, an elephant.
This week, we escaped the Bay Area via a four-hour drive and a 5,980-foot trek up to the Calpine Fire Lookout in the Sierra Valley, just off Highway 89 near Truckee. A onetime forest fire tower that was used every summer until 1975, the Lookout costs $45 a night—a bargain for an evening brimming with stars and sweeping views.
