The Fog and Views at Twin Peaks, San Francisco.

There are many places to capture the beauty of San Francisco from. A popular spot for romantics, photographers, tourists and people who love sunrises is Twin Peaks.

Of the peaks that rise up to 920-feet, I arrived at the popular tourist spot on the northern peak known as Christmas Tree Point in late morning. Normally there would be open views of the skyline, city, San Francisco Bay and points behind, but that pesky fog was around yet again. 🙂 San Francisco are you there?

The fog from the ocean and coastline was coming up over the top of the hills and parking itself right in front of me. I snapped these shots quickly in-between the patches. I was getting teased about what was on the other side.

Tourist buses came by one after another, but didn’t stay very long, due to the hidden views. Twin Peaks is part of the 49-mile scenic drive. You can get up to the top on Twin Peaks Boulevard, passing by many colorful houses on the windy journey up to the undeveloped top. Tip: Get here early as parking is limited. Due to the fog I had no issues.

I can almost see you. 🙂

  1. I think I’ll have to go there next time in SF! It’s not the first time you’ve found some great vantage points in the area! 😀

    • Yes yes, add it to your list! Great panoramic views of the city and bay, on the other side of the fog. Your speaking of Marin Headlands opposite the Golden Gate Bridge I imagine. 🙂 The places to capture amazing scenery seem limitless there!

  2. So much fog! Not crazy for that area though. Thankfully when I went there wasn’t a fog in the sky, haha. Just sent you a post you might like with my views of twin peak on twitter, or check out my blog below! Thanks!

    • Thanks for sharing your SF post! Great pics. It was great to see Twin Peaks again without the fog haha. The fog seemed to follow me around everywhere last year.Look forward to following your travels and checking your blog out more in-depth.
