Glen Canyon Park, San Francisco
March 17, 2010
Glen Canyon Park is an unexpected surprise in the Diamond Heights neighborhood. A refuge from the city noise, this canyon has sloping meadows, steep rocky outcrops, a creek and woods. If you are looking for a nature retreat right in the city, this place offers a lot to see from wild flowers to animals. Hiking trials follow the contours of the landscape. The light is very good on the east side of the canyon in the late afternoon.

You can see the Sutro Tower in the background

I saw this wildflower next to the creek at the bottom of the glen
People do some rock climbing here
… and spring flowers
