My boyfriend and I recently went on a mini-hike of Mount Sutro to scope the scene for further adventures, but the relatively brief experience was immense. I could hardly believe I’ve lived for so long (haha) without exploring it, it was so gorgeous.
We entered through an inconspicuous staircase at 17th and Stanyan that could have easily been mistaken for private property. At first it looked like it could’ve just been someone’s nice backyard, but a few meters later it was a full-fledged forest: dense, quiet, wild, and alive. It became so easy to forget we were still in the middle of a big city. This place is just stunning.
And the fog made it just perfect. Because of the geography and size of the trees, it’s supposed to have a bit of fog all year round, which automatically makes it more enjoyable to me.
