From the Twin Peaks, San Francisco

The first vista point I take all my friends and relatives visiting San Francisco for the first time is Twin Peaks. From here one can see all of San Francisco at once - Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito, Alcatraz Island, Park Presidio to the north, the downtown, Bay Bridge, San Francisco Bay to the east, the residential neighborhoods of Daly City and South San Francisco to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. No other point of interest puts the visitors in so much awe as this one does.

Winter is the best period of the year to visit Twin Peaks. San Francisco, for all its paradoxes, gets foggy and cold during the summer. Summer visitors will surely miss the Golden Gate Bridge. My wife's uncle and aunt visited us last week, and we got a chance to visit Twin Peaks. San Francisco was at its best. These are some of the pics I shot.
