The Coastal, Wolf Ridge, and Miwok Trail Loop

Summer in San Francisco

Summer in San Francisco means fog. Karl, much like a returning summer intern, arrives mid-June and hangs around through most of August. Last weekend Iris and I planned a hiking trip in the Marin Headlands only to arrive at Silent Hill. Determined to hike through fog (and eventually rain), we managed to complete the Coastal, Wolf Ridge, and Miwok Trail loop – starting at Rodeo Beach.

Tired and wet, we were turned away from the dining hall. Upon returning to the car we cranked up the heat and powered through our Davey Jones Deli sandwiches. We then drove back into our beloved city for some delicious hot chocolate & apple cider to celebrate our victorious hike. I’m sure this hike is beyond beautiful in perfect weather, but I think it was slightly more epic in the middle of the fog. Thanks Karl!
