Drive 100 miles north up Highway 101, then veer west toward the ocean on Highway 128 and you'll find Anderson Valley. It's a place to escape the crowds, channel your inner cowboy, sharpen your wine knowledge, and see more stars than you have in a long time.
If you thought the party would slow down on Sunday in preparation for the upcoming week, you were dead wrong. Outside Lands continued in a fervor with an abundance of food, wine overflowing, and the foggy weather brought in an array of odd hats. Mark your calendar for next year's Outside Lands 2013!
Check out photos of Saturday's Outside Lands. Craziness, arrests, drinking, huge doses of music and, of course, the beautiful Golden Gate Park scenery.
Check out some shots of Friday at Outside Lands, lots of dancing, smiles, foggy and chilly weather, and good times were had. Check back tomorrow morning for more pics from today.
No matter where you spent your 4th of July in the Bay Area, you were in for a spectacular show. Here are some shots from Bernal Hill with a nice view overlooking the city. Where did you watch?
Brett and Karen Thurber opened The New Wheel, an innovative ebike shop in Bernal Heights, this past March. The shop features a variety of pedal assist bikes to help out with the many San Francisco hills. The "optimistic bike shop" was founded in 2010 in North Beach and features a full bike maintenance shop for conventional bikes along with electric bikes. They even have their own charging station (fashioned to look like a gas pump) at their sidewalk entrance. Stop by to meet Brett and Karen, and experience their excellent customer service and take an electric bike for a test ride around Bernal Heights.
With the arrival of several key parts of their new AC 72 (America's Cup 72-foot sail), Oracle is practicing in San Francisco Bay. We went behind the scenes at Oracle's giant Pier 80 complex to catch the latest America's Cup action happening in our backyard.
Beautiful, sunny weather shone upon the 2,000 amateur and professional athletes who braved the 1.5 mile swim from Alcatraz to the Marina Green. From the Marina, they took an 18-mile bike ride through hilly SF and finished it off with an 8-mile run that included the famous sand ladder at Baker Beach. Andy Potts of Colorado Springs won today for the 5th time setting a course record for the most ever won by a male. Leanda Cave won for the women.
If you had any energy left after Bay to Breakers madness, then a bit after five o'clock yesterday you were treated to a rare annular solar eclipse with about 84% of the sun covered by the moon.
