San Francisco Diaries: Signs of Fall in the Presidio

For all its cool, calm glory this city can sure pull out the stops when it comes to unexpected temperature spikes. Last week I was caught a bit off-guard by the 90-degree weather whilst hitting the trails in the Presidio (a national park within city limits!), but no matter. I had my camera.

Kept the commentary to a minimum this time…I tried writing more, but found myself just kicking back to enjoy the pictures for the visual pleasure :-)

I actually also shot some video footage during this jaunt, which I’ll be posting here on the blog soon. Here are a few ways you can let me update you about new content:

  • I post snapshots and video clips of my “quiet girl adventures” in San Francisco and beyond as @carlagabrielgarcia on Instagram
