Warm Day in the Bay

For early January, this was an amazing afternoon above the bay at nearly 70F. ย 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.
