I discovered this Marin Headlands view of the Golden Gate Bridge on one of my very first trips to San Francisco. In my three-plus years living in the Bay Area, I still haven’t found a view to top it. My favorite time to visit is just after sunset,...

Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve in Guerneville offers easy one-mile hikes and strenuous nine-miles climbs. No matter which you choose, the scenery is spectacular. Look for Parson Jones, the tallest tree in the grove, which measures more...

If you travel through California I highly recommend taking the trek up to see the great Redwood trees. These tall and ancient Sequoias hold a special wonder. If you aren’t able to make it up to the “Valley of the Giants” in Humboldt County there...

No, not that CIA. This lunch feels a lot more pleasant and delicious, I'm sure. Make a reservation at the Greystone Restaurant and taste local, seasonal menus while looking out over Napa Valley vineyards.

I was on hike along the Estero Trail when I came across this brown pelican, sitting firmly, on a wooden bridge. I inched up towards it so I could have closer look at this beautiful bird. It didn't budge so I decided to sit down next to it to soak...

Hiking around Mt. Tamalpais is the best thing of all times, ever. That, pretty much, everyone agrees on. But this weekend, I found a way to make it better. Start at the Pantoll Ranger Station and take the Matt Davis trail. This will be a nice mix...
