Marin Headlands, California, USA
I'm driving up Conzelman Road in Sausolito, California to the Marin Headlands to overlook the city of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, and all the parking spaces are occupied.
Keep driving, turn the bend. 2nd Overlook. Darn! Taken again! Turn ANOTHER bend. 3rd times a charm. A spot to park! Only, the bridge is now peaking out beyond the hills behind me.
I step out of the car to find a walking path on the opposite side of the guardrail between the road I drove in on and the green cliffs below. An adventure. I walk. One eye on the path, the other on the bridge. The twist and turns take me past the road I drove in on. This is fun. I reach the entrance to the famous overlook. The path is empty, except for some hollow buildings and another lone traveler on the same quest as I am. I follow. And with anticipation, I reach the bridge.
I'm so glad the 1st vista parking spaces were occupied.
