Autumn in San Francisco

While summer is universally the most popular time to travel, October and November are, in many ways, the best months to visit San Francisco. The heat of the midsummer sun in the Central Valley of California means fog for much of the coastline during June, July and August (see Samuel Clemens' take on summer in SF), but when the temperatures begin to even out between inland and coastal regions, San Francisco basks in fall sunshine—the results are views like the image posted above, which I took during a cycling trip from the city to Marin.
