Warm Day in the Bay

For early January, this was an amazing afternoon above the bay at nearly 70F.  The crowds were mild and we actually hiked to the very top and had an unobstructed view. Battery Spencer was a military outpost from 1897 to 1942, best known for its coastal gun battery as part of the defense to the entrance to San Francisco Bay, 1890-1910.


Today it is known for stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge; and on a clear day when the fog abates, the entire north end of San Francisco.
