Cross Country Roadtrip: San Francisco

Thursday, January 28, 2016

 This post is part of a series about our Cross Country Roadtrip. To see all the previous posts, click here.
 
We left our campground early in the morning and drove to the Golden Gate National Recreation Center. We stopped at one of the Visitor Centers and asked where to go to get good pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge. The park ranger suggested Battery Spencer and Vista Point.

Finn wasn't a big fan of this area because it was so windy!

Our next stop was Fisherman's Wharf, which was a miserable experience. It was super crowded and there were metal drainage grates all over the ground, which terrified Finn. We ate lunch and then got out of there.

I had read online that the trolleys were dog friendly, so we went there next. While getting tickets, Sam found out that dogs were only allowed if they were muzzled. I hadn't read about that anywhere online. We weren't going to muzzle our dog, so we left.

I suggested that we walk over to Lombard Street (the famous winding street), and we had to walk up some very steep hills to get there. Finn thought it was super fun, and was so happy to get away from crowds. He was our little billy goat dog, but the humans found it to be a very difficult walk.

Next, Sam stopped at a Starbucks and I watched a trolley turnaround. 
We found San Francisco to be mostly miserable and not very dog friendly. We left earlier than we planned and drove to our next campground - Big Basin Redwoods State Park. It took us a long time to get there, so I'm glad we didn't spend much time in San Francisco. The next day we spent in Big Sur.
