Mount Davidson

On a cool crisp yet clear Sunday we head north to San Francisco's Mount Davidson for spectacular views of San Francisco without the crowds of Twin Peaks. The peak is the highest natural elevation in San Francisco, at 928 feet. From this vantage point we noticed a park downhill and wanted to check it out. That park was Glen Canyon Park. This was an area of the city that we were not familiar with. The area had some nice neighborhood homes with lovely views of the green belt that is Glen Canyon.
